The Jingoistic States of Ignis Tenebris is a huge, safe nation, notable for its closed borders, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 456 million Tenebrisians 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, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Placeholder. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Tenebrisian economy, worth 30.2 trillion Flammas 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. 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 66,151 Flammas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The world outside is only known of in folklore, everyone apparently sends Leader hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ignis Tenebris's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ignis Tenebris is ranked 39,085th in the world and 508th in 10000 Islands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 148.92 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
