Isles of Iles

Population3.697 billion



The Y̦͕̪̞̦̭͕̠̻̹̣̹͎͇e̬̟͎̼̯̥̦̪̼ṣ̣̹ of Isles of Iles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Death with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.697 billion Ileans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spiffington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ilean economy, worth 509 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 137,791 Golds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 476,805 per year while the poor average 29,096, a ratio of 16.4 to 1.

Foreign heads of state have taken out restraining orders against Ilean ambassadors, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, there's a bustling black market for vegetables, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Isles of Iles's national animal is the Mercenary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Death.

Isles of Iles is ranked 57,666th in the world and 4th in Grand Ole Republic for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,668.13 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
