Stone Ira

The ꏸꋫ꒓ꁕ ꄘꋫ꒓ꁒꂑꁹꁍ ꁹꋫ꓅ꂑꆂꁹ of Stone Ira is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Unknown with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.126 billion Unknowns are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Stone. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Unknown economy, worth 404 trillion IRAS a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,506 IRAS, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Twice-daily toilet inspection rotas for government buildings are archived for public appraisal, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, the legal system for the political class is completely separate from the one for normal citizens, and there are no more heroes any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stone Ira's national animal is the Unknown, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Unknown.

Stone Ira is ranked 14,769th in the world and 554th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,952.32 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
