The People's Republic of Iove is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 193 million Ioveans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Iovean economy, worth 5.75 trillion oits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 29,777 oits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, bizarre-looking creatures called 'wolfdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iove's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iove is ranked 27,848th in the world and 1,055th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
