The Federation of Ioke 7 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 749 million Ioke 7ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Healthcare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.2%.

The strong Ioke 7ian economy, worth 45.4 trillion salts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,653 salts, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 226,847 per year while the poor average 11,353, a ratio of 20.0 to 1.

Fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Ioke 7 flights to avoid the pay lavatories, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, and all beauty contests have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioke 7's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ioke 7 is ranked 143,907th in the world and 2nd in 0527 Oriental plover for Most Extreme, scoring 14.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
