The Domain of IRTAE is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primum with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.498 billion Irtaeans 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kapitola. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Irtaean economy, worth a remarkable 3,810 trillion DEMS 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 262,812 DEMS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, the Irtaean football team for the Maxxmas ceasefire consists only of Intelligence Corps personnel, Irtaean tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IRTAE's national animal is the Swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

IRTAE is ranked 25,668th in the world and 8th in The Nationstates Assembly for Best Weather, with 150 meters of sunlight.
