The Ancient and Loyal Republic of South Boston Irishmen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Michael Collins with a fair hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 12.648 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin City. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, refugees from other nations are flocking to South Boston Irishmen's border, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Boston Irishmen's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the euro.
