The Dictatorship of ReOpenNominations is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 500 million iRONics are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant iRONic economy, worth 8.16 trillion drama llamas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Retail, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,317 drama llamas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military struggles with recruitment, the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ReOpenNominations's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ReOpenNominations is ranked 135,416th in the world and 5,606th in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -7.35 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
