The Helladric Commonwealth of Ionysia is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.555 billion Ionydi are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ionyd economy, worth 610 trillion Ionyd Ducats a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 34,786 Ionyd Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the government is reining in public spending, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ionysia's national animal is the River Barge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ionysia is ranked 8,496th in the world and 2nd in The Assembly of Sovereign Nations for Best Weather, with 236 Meters Of Sunlight.
