The Republic of The Socialist Irish State is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Citizens of Ireland with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 959 million Irish Socialists love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Connolly City. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Irish socialist economy, worth 82.1 trillion Euros 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 85,653 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's often raining men (hallelujah) in Connolly City, the old neighbourhood isn't how most Irish Socialists remember it, the election for The Citizens of Ireland's office's janitor is heating up, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Socialist Irish State's national animal is the Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Socialist Irish State is ranked 13,226th in the world and 203rd in The Leftist Assembly for Most Income Equality, scoring 79.11 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
