The Floating Islands of The Illusian Empire is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lady Mary Annette with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.104 billion Illusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Temple of Illusia. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Illusian Empirean economy, worth 603 trillion Ills a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,804 Ills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Illusian Empire's national animal is the Illusian Sea Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Temple of Peaceful Chaos.

The Illusian Empire is ranked 7,177th in the world and 170th in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 8,134 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
