The United Islands of Iontan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Executive Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.378 billion Iontanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iontan City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Iontian economy, worth a remarkable 5,431 trillion Tayoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 222,811 Tayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iontan's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iontan is ranked 2,490th in the world and 65th in 10000 Islands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 92 valid endorsements.
