The People's Republic of Kirrlark is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Atlas with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.229 billion Kirrlarkians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atla. The average income tax rate is 23.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Kirrlarkian economy, worth 233 trillion Purnies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 55,329 Purnies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, and the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kirrlark's national animal is the Grey Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Kirrlark is ranked 149,704th in the world and 947th in The Communist Bloc for Most Developed, scoring 55.02 on the Human Development Index.
