The Republic of Iristead is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.69 billion Iristeadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 52.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Iristeadian economy, worth 404 trillion Cereses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 150,441 Cereses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
The fattest folk in Iristead look to be the happiest ones, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Iristeadian as 'your finger, you fool', the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Iristead's national animal is the Blue Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
