The Queen's State of Irving Bell is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its restrictive gun laws and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.123 billion Irving Bellians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The medium-sized, moralistic government is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.7%.
The powerhouse Irving Bellian economy, worth 325 trillion betales a year, is highly specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 24,778 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 71,760 per year while the poor average 6,780, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.
Voting is voluntary, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Irving Bell's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
