The Holy Empire of Irol is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 14.795 billion Irolians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Irolian economy, worth 202 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 13,687 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, all industry is owned and run by the government, voting is voluntary, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Irol's national animal is the vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Irol is ranked 153,446th in the world and 21st in Iran for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.12 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
