The United Islands of Iontan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Executive Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.655 billion Iontanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iontan City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Iontian economy, worth a remarkable 5,501 trillion Tayoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 223,125 Tayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iontan's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iontan is ranked 21,842nd in the world and 297th in 10000 Islands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.44 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
