The United Islands of Iontan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Executive Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.458 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, socially-minded 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 4,401 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 215,133 Tayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Iontan. 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 187,208th in the world and 1,771st in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring -81.56 on the Rand Index.
