The Dictatorship of Ichlein is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Erick Right with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, avant-garde cinema, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.732 billion Ichleinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pure City. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Ichleinian economy, worth 69.5 trillion Ichlodimes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 40,124 Ichlodimes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, international trade can be a pain to deal with, and the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ichlein's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ichlein is ranked 118,759th in the world and 773rd in Europe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 58.85 Years.
