Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Absolute Monarchy of Kingdom of Irhk is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Willem de Rochefort-Sayf with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.795 billion irhkians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded 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 931 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 194,363 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces. 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 8,287th in the world and 25th in Brasil for Most Influential, scoring 3,611 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
