The Republic of Promised Islands is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 607 million Promised Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolitan Area. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Promised Insular economy, worth 65.5 trillion credit points a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,872 credit points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's former secretary was last sighted on her new yacht, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. Crime is totally unknown. Promised Islands's national animal is the albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Promised Islands is ranked 20,932nd in the world and 608th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,985.86 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
