The Temporary Lactuca sativa of Itrosomia is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.113 billion Itrosomae love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Frozen City. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Itrosomior economy, worth 853 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,692 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itrosomia's national animal is the Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Itrosomia is ranked 4,015th in the world and 14th in Spiritus for Most Developed, scoring 93.42 on the Human Development Index.
