The Armed Republic of Intrakia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Eternal President Joeff with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.17 billion Intrakians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siport. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Intrakian economy, worth 707 trillion desres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 169,610 desres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Guns don't kill people — heroes do, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Intrakia's national animal is the blue land crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Killiorism.

Intrakia is ranked 1,405th in the world and 1st in Alstrept for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 16,545.15 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
