The International brotherhood of We-R-Igors is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.498 billion Igors are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Industry, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uberwald. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The very strong an Igor economy, worth 245 trillion silver pennies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining.

We-R-Igors has designated Uberwald as its capital city, organ donation is compulsory, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Raven, and half of We-R-Igors's doctors can't speak the language. Crime is a serious problem. We-R-Igors's national animal is the Raven.
