The Classical Republic of Nude East Ireland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mycroft Holmes with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.66 billion plural are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pergamon. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient adjective economy, worth 510 trillion witty comebacks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,650 witty comebacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Nude East Ireland's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nude East Ireland's national animal is the homeless orphan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
Nude East Ireland is ranked 10th in Ankh Mauta and 6,425th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 626.95 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
