Kingdom of Irhk

Population8.217 billion

LeaderKing Willem II


The Absolute Monarchy of Kingdom of Irhk is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Willem II with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.217 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 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Irhkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,619 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 197,094 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Kingdom of Irhk's radio stations, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and slackers at work are told to "crack on with it". 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 6,431st in the world and 12th in Novo Brasil for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 14 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
