The Illusion of Isokenzar is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Isocato with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, humorless population of 5.033 billion Isokenzarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sector 47. The average income tax rate is 53.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isokenzarian economy, worth 767 trillion z-bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 152,447 z-bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", there's some really clean windows in Isokenzarian houses, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and being Isocato has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime is totally unknown. 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 67,470th in the world and 1,972nd in the South Pacific for Most Average, scoring 41.93 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
