The Radchaai Province of Ifreann is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Anaander Mianaai with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 27.993 billion Iffies are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ifreann Palace. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Iffish economy, worth a remarkable 3,087 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 110,313 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Ifreann Palace. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ifreann's national animal is the fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the Radchaai religion.

Ifreann is ranked 6,322nd in the world and 2nd in The Isles O Chocolate Coatings for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 466.6 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
