The Suspicious Yellow Stain of HIreland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Drunken-most with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, strictly enforced bedtime, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.814 billion HIrelanders are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Tipsy Leprechaun. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The frighteningly efficient HIrelandian economy, worth 871 trillion Beers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 228,389 Beers, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

There are fifty shades of yellow in outdoor swimming pools, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in The Drunken-most's bedroom, tourists are duped into trimming hedges for the horsy-set, and open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. HIreland's national animal is the Drunkard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Free beer.

HIreland is ranked 9,460th in the world and 215th in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 5,311 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
