The Republic of Ishkabibber is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 35.976 billion Ishkabibberians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Ishkabibberian economy, worth 847 trillion doleroes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 23,548 doleroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
In a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ishkabibber's national animal is the lasa ahpso, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
