The 99% Sugar Free Salt Extract of Izonno is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Izon with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.46 billion Izonnoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Compton. The average income tax rate is 75.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Izonnoan economy, worth 923 trillion Iconas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,125 Iconas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, businessmen walk out of meetings halfway because their shift is over, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Izonno's national animal is the Pop, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Izonno is ranked 131,393rd in the world and 5,069th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37 on the Rand Index.
