The Irish Czech Love Story of Once is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Taoiseach with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 15.685 billion Celts enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Oncean economy, worth a remarkable 4,211 trillion Love Songs a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 268,492 Love Songs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,200,144 per year while the poor average 37,253, a ratio of 32.2 to 1.

The industries of Once are coughing all the way to the bank, the entire entry for Once in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', the nation's new flagship trading company deals exclusively in things no one wants, and recognizing the Oncean flag qualifies you for citizenship. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Once's national animal is the Fiddle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Once is ranked 17,363rd in the world and 177th in NationStates for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,101.65 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
