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 unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 20.409 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyonesse. The average income tax rate is 35%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

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, its national religion is Biblioholism, and its currency is the foliage.

I V Stalin is ranked 66th in Lazarus and 1,356th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 276.299 Insults Per Minute (net).
