The Holy Coalition of The Independent States of Allied Forces is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme President Vincent Harling with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.693 billion ISAFians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mobius. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient ISAFian economy, worth a remarkable 2,051 trillion golds a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,012 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every workday begins with group therapy, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, and the TISOAFAF has poured billions of golds into anti-spaceship defenses to protect The Independent States of Allied Forces against outsiders (The Independent States of Allied Forces has found 1 easter egg). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Independent States of Allied Forces's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Independent States of Allied Forces is ranked 214,647th in the world and 114th in Wintercrest for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
