Islesesopeia

The Federation of Islesesopeia is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.175 billion Islesesopeians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The all-consuming Islesesopeian economy, worth 872 trillion marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,675 marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 964,983 per year while the poor average 1,407, a ratio of 685 to 1.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, most academic research has ground to a halt, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and the rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay. Crime is a problem. Islesesopeia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Islesesopeia is ranked 13,471st in the world and 207th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 90 on the Rand Index.
