The People's Republic of Islansi is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 586 million Islansis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Islanese economy, worth 47.3 trillion Isla Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,729 Isla Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Islansi's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Islansi is ranked 58,842nd in the world and 1,735th in the Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 63.99 Insults Per Minute.
