The Democratic Republic of IslaNublar is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.114 billion IslaNublarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Republic City. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The IslaNublarian economy, worth 67.8 trillion lire a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 32,048 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, people have become comfortably numb, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and the IslaNublarian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IslaNublar's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

IslaNublar is ranked 127,985th in the world and 5,390th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,297.22 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
