The Republic of Itanland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ruben with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.094 billion Itanlandians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itandon. The average income tax rate is 7.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Itanlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,336 trillion Itans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 256,967 Itans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, bins outnumber trees in city parks, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance. Crime is totally unknown. Itanland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Itanland is ranked 3,534th in the world and 144th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7,121.19 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
