The Federal Blue Republic of Iglot is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Tony Astor with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.344 billion Iglotians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eksdee City. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iglotian economy, worth 167 trillion hatdogs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,827 hatdogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iglot's national animal is the Vampire Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Iglot is ranked 8,252nd in the world and 179th in the West Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,782.67 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
