The Republic of Ischaemia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.414 billion Ischaemians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 3.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ischaemian economy, worth a remarkable 3,427 trillion pesos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,935 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, nose plugs are the latest Ischaemian fashion accessory, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime is totally unknown. Ischaemia's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ischaemia is ranked 35,568th in the world and 1,718th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.24 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
