The Free Land of The Island of Isla is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Cavendish Banana with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.645 billion Island of Islans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SODESIRE. The average income tax rate is 27.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Island of Islan economy, worth 196 trillion BananaBucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 119,447 BananaBucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, new vat-grown soldiers are as replaceable as bullets, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in The Island of Isla to be bombproof, and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. Crime is totally unknown. The Island of Isla's national animal is the THE VENUS, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bannanism.

The Island of Isla is ranked 201,678th in the world and 9th in RAAI for Fattest Citizens, with 9.27 Obesity Rate.
