The Republic of Ischaemia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 25.459 billion Ischaemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 4.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ischaemian economy, worth a remarkable 3,841 trillion pesos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,900 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", and parking's carefree without parking car fees. Crime is totally unknown. Ischaemia's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ischaemia is ranked 240,746th in the world and 9,900th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -26.72 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
