The Holy Empire of Itic is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 310 million Iticians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Education, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Itician economy, worth 15.7 trillion groschens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 50,634 groschens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
There's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, the nation is 10000 Islands's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and the government has been criticized for giving away Itic's territory to anyone who claims it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itic's national animal is the imperial eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
