The People's Republic of The Interbrigades is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.523 billion Interbrigadesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iridesco. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Interbrigadesian economy, worth 218 trillion Silver Socialist Seals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 39,564 Silver Socialist Seals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interbrigadesian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, the government has been criticized for giving away The Interbrigades's territory to anyone who claims it, and Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Interbrigades's national animal is the Iridescent Basilisk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Interbrigades is ranked 9,362nd in the world and 85th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,717.56 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
