The Illusion of Isokenzar is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Isocato with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.679 billion Isokenzarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sector 47. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isokenzarian economy, worth 918 trillion z-bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,548 z-bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth, and the Communist Party claims that selling things for profit isn't necessarily capitalism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isokenzar's national animal is the stinking dwarf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Ongoing Existential Crisis.

Isokenzar is ranked 162,161st in the world and 5,455th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.13 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
