The Absolute Monarchy of Kingdom of Irhk is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Willem II with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.97 billion irhkians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zerrik. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Irhkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,768 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 197,134 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Slackers at work are told to "crack on with it", sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, and troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of Irhk's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kingdom of Irhk is ranked 9,653rd in the world and 34th in Novo Brasil for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 388.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
