The Most Serene Republic of Iodinia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alexandra Ericsen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.038 billion Iodinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elaburg. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Iodinian economy, worth 619 trillion ionics a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,446 ionics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iodinia's national animal is the grey seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Iodinia is ranked 4,739th in the world and 151st in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,322.15 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
