The United Imperial States of Ivorica is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mark Johnson with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, aversion to nipples, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.873 billion Ivoricans 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Columbus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ivorican economy, worth a remarkable 2,705 trillion Ivorican Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 393,708 Ivorican Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, Mark Johnson has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, and a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivorica's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bunch of religions.

Ivorica is ranked 7,707th in the world and 3rd in Lezra for Highest Poor Incomes, with 114,477.9 Standard Monetary Units.
