The Republic of Ignis States is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Strein Iuseira Draksesa Váradi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.908 billion Ignasae 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 medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Radentora. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ignisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,491 trillion Draechmais 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 an amazing 421,680 Draechmais, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, and if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Ignis States. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ignis States's national animal is the White Kestrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eixuism.

Ignis States is ranked 9,514th in the world and 3rd in Northern Ocean for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,703.45 Tourists Per Hour.
