The Inane Ravings of I V Stalin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rob the Insane with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.321 billion Stalinists 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 tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyonesse. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stalinist economy, worth a remarkable 7,158 trillion foliages a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 320,689 foliages, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. I V Stalin's national animal is the llama, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Biblioholism.

I V Stalin is ranked 56,212th in the world and 1,294th in Balder for Highest Drug Use, scoring 79.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
