The Republic of Irkanien is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alrun Amalbalde with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.707 billion Irkanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Irkania Stadd. The average income tax rate is 38.5%.

The all-consuming Irkanian economy, worth 593 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,133 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay, organ donation is compulsory, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Irkanien's national animal is the Tapir, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Irkanien is ranked 20,775th in the world and 4th in Door Monster Entertainment for Most Stationary, with 758.20195919488 Days.
