The Cosmopolitan State of The IGER Civilization is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the SRI Command Authority with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.347 billion Citizens of the IGER are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visp on Planet Earth. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient IGER economy, worth a remarkable 6,355 trillion IGER-Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 442,984 IGER-Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The IGER Civilization's national animal is the genetically reconstructed Mammoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is scienctific atheism.

The IGER Civilization is ranked 188,761st in the world and 2nd in SICON for Most Conservative, scoring 31 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
