The Holy Revelries of HIreland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Drunken-most with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.942 billion HIrelanders are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business 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 6.2%.

The frighteningly efficient HIrelandian economy, worth 587 trillion Beers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 199,666 Beers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 754,670 per year while the poor average 36,754, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

Police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework. Crime 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 208,598th in the world and 7,617th in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 26.79 Years.
