The Republic of Ignatia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ignatius VIII with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 1.828 billion Ignatians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ignatia Aeternum. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ignatian economy, worth 82.8 trillion Ignums a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,305 Ignums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and single celebrities have to repeatedly prove their chastity to avoid being married off to infatuated fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ignatia's national animal is the Pheonix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ignatia is ranked 34,062nd in the world and 1,114th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,778.6 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
