The Northern Isle of IslaMond is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Bear of Burden with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.776 billion IslaMondians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordika. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong IslaMondian economy, worth 264 trillion Clods a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,957 Clods, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, there's a bright dawn ahead for IslaMond, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IslaMond's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

IslaMond is ranked 35,765th in the world and 477th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 71.91 on the Human Development Index.
