The Senatorial Republic of Illiricium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ema Milize with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.613 billion Illiricans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alqiro. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Illirican economy, worth a remarkable 1,511 trillion Illirican Lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,448 Illirican Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Innocent civilians in Brasilistan are evacuating the country after rumours a nuclear strike is imminent, the nation is weighing the price of victory following a nuclear strike, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and politicians can be seen taking candy from babies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Illiricium's national animal is the Robaldi Valley Feline, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Illiricium is ranked 7,454th in the world and 189th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 107.13 law-abiding acts per hour.
