The Democratic States of Ikaoxc is a huge, genial nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 360 million Ikaoxcians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Farael. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ikaoxcian economy, worth 12.4 trillion Tularrs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 34,482 Tularrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ikaoxc's national animal is the Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Ikaoxc is ranked 128,384th in the world and 562nd in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 16.45 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
