The Incorporated States of Psycho Isle is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Jeffrey Dahmer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.13 billion Psychos are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Knife Stomach Ripper. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The all-consuming Psychotic economy, worth 456 trillion flesh wounds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 89,024 flesh wounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 587,350 per year while the poor average 5,226, a ratio of 112 to 1.

Life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", it is customary to begin the summer with a fasting ritual in which people eat nothing but kumquat smoothies, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Psycho Isle's national animal is the Bullet rhino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Darkness.

Psycho Isle is ranked 167,306th in the world and 24th in Aeia for Most Politically Free, scoring 23.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
