The Tyrany of Irid

The Queendom of The Tyrany of Irid is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 227 million Iridians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Iridian economy, worth 6.03 trillion IrisBits 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 26,585 IrisBits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tyrany of Irid's national animal is the Iris, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Tyrany of Irid is ranked 40,118th in the world and 1,405th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,169.09 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
