The Empire of Igritann is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ambrose Stone with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.179 billion Ardas are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vulcan city. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Igritannian economy, worth 836 trillion IGRS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,489 IGRS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, walking to the local pizza parlour earns a lovely sports participation ribbon, and antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Igritann's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Igritann is ranked 147,345th in the world and 3,682nd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,398.54 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
