Stone Ira

Population4.366 billion

CapitalOld Stone


The 𐍃𐌵𐍉𐍂𐌄𐌑𐌄 𐌁𐌀𐍂𐌕 of Stone Ira is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Unknown with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, national health service, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.366 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Stone. The average income tax rate is 80.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Unknown economy, worth 694 trillion IRAS a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,130 IRAS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 224,506th in the world and 9,784th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 30.47 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
