The Third Dynastic Kingdom of Neo-Irkalla is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Lugal Urmahbar with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 851 million Neo-Irkallans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ganzir. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Neo-Irkallan economy, worth 75.4 trillion Shiqlus 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 88,637 Shiqlus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and smoking is banned in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-Irkalla's national animal is the Maned Lapis Beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Neo-Irkalla is ranked 9,402nd in the world and 2nd in Ersetum for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 78.47 Workforce Participation Rate.
