The United Islands of Iontan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Executive Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.268 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, socially-minded 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 4,323 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 213,323 Tayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. 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 1,264th in the world and 19th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 146.84 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
