The Scientific Republic of Inhwan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Osaki with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.815 billion Intellectuals hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyun. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Intelligent economy, worth 279 trillion bitcoins 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, Book Publishing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. 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 99,315 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prudishness is on the way out, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million bitcoins of property damage. Crime is totally unknown. Inhwan's national animal is the android.

Inhwan is ranked 20,880th in the world and 219th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 6,970.1 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
