The Exalted Republic of Iacomia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Reginald Worthington-Smythe with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 15.308 billion Iacoms enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iacomiopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Iacomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,585 trillion New Republican Goatrarches a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 168,896 New Republican Goatrarches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Iacoms incessantly needle their doctors for relief, being impolite in public is punishable by heavy fines, extreme political groups are outlawed, and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime is totally unknown. Iacomia's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is rather pleasant.

Iacomia is ranked 230,749th in the world and 4th in The Associated States of the Oort Cloud for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -47.37 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
