The Community of Izone is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic population of 954 million Izoneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Izonean economy, worth 101 trillion wizzes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,043 wizzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof. Crime is totally unknown. Izone's national animal is the wizone, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Izone is ranked 11,511th in the world and 308th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 353.28 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
