The Empire of Irascibilis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Iosef Hitler with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.077 billion Irascibilisians 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Irascibilis City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Irascibilisian economy, worth 220 trillion Aureuses 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. 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 204,288 Aureuses, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, children have nightmares about the eerie red glow and constant whirring of newly-installed machines, it takes all playtime for children to locate their friends among two hundred identical heads, and courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Irascibilisians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Irascibilis's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Irascibilis is ranked 8,881st in the world and 1st in Imperial Sector for Most Avoided, scoring 140.99 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
