The Republic of Ischaemia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.164 billion Ischaemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Social Policy is also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 4.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ischaemian economy, worth a remarkable 3,729 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 154,351 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Ischaemian pirates, and the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation. Crime is totally unknown. Ischaemia's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ischaemia is ranked 26,454th in the world and 843rd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 79.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
