The Imperial Republic of Ignis States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Imperial Consul Zen Pyrrus with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.665 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Radentora. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ignisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,326 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, broadly diversified 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 362,014 Draechmais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and there's no such thing as a safe bet. 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 Ignisian Orthodox Christianity.

Ignis States is ranked 172,867th in the world and 9th in Northern Ocean for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.74 Missed References Per Hour.
