The Imperial Directive of Ichirokuhachi is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Premier Ronan Iroha with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.216 billion Irohans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itou. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Irohan economy, worth 205 trillion credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 169,031 credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, and phenotypic plasticity is a struggle for sealife in polluted waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ichirokuhachi's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ichirokuhachi is ranked 243,675th in the world and 251st in Lands End for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -46.79 on the Hayek Index.
