The Queendom of Iridencia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Princess Story with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.41 billion people of the fable are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Imaginarium. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Iridencian economy, worth 169 trillion bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 18,032 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Princess Story is the self-declared God of all Iridencia, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and asking about politics will earn a man a head pat and warnings that government is the woman's sphere. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iridencia's national animal is the Butterfly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Church of Fantasy.

Iridencia is ranked 61,653rd in the world and 2,997th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 73 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
