LeaderPresident Al Bacardi


The Federal Republic of Iconic Republic is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Al Bacardi with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.645 billion Iconics have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iconic City. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iconic economy, worth 340 trillion Iconis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,900 Iconis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, purported secret military bases are dismissed by President Al Bacardi to be highly-advanced toilet factories, and the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iconic Republic's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iconic Republic is ranked 150,420th in the world and 3,407th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 131 billion Standard Monetary Units.
