The Republic of Itanland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ruben with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.093 billion Itanlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itandon. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Itanlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,573 trillion Itans a year, is quite specialized 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 amazing 272,928 Itans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Itanlandians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, dinosaur breeders have a yabba-dabba-doo gay old time in Itanland, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, and large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itanland's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Itanland is ranked 244,315th in the world and 9,411th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -802.37 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
