The United Islands of Iontan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Executive Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.777 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 4,467 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 215,033 Tayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, children are raised bilingual from an early age, the children of Iontan are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. 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 222,694th in the world and 1,489th in 10000 Islands for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -44.6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
