The Republic of ISOP is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Shammakh Naserite with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.344 billion ISOPians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ISOP. The average income tax rate is 64.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient ISOPian economy, worth 341 trillion ISO CryptoCash$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,872 ISO CryptoCash$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, people experiencing anaphylactic shock are told to buck their ideas up, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. ISOP's national animal is the Classified, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

ISOP is ranked 13,092nd in the world and 668th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 87.68 on the Human Development Index.
