The Most Serene Republic of Iodinia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alexandra Ericsen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.242 billion Iodinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elaburg. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Iodinian economy, worth 646 trillion ionics a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,509 ionics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Elaburg to enjoy their national art, autocrats are persona non grata, and Elaburg has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The East Pacific. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iodinia's national animal is the grey seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Iodinia is ranked 175,419th in the world and 6,117th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.05 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
