The Republic of Ibarkla is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kōki Yanagi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.315 billion Ibarklans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caparce. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ibarklan economy, worth 183 trillion roboRIOs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,723 roboRIOs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, facial disfigurement is a leading cause of supervillainy, foreign football clubs wave the Ibarklan flag before every game, and what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ibarkla's national animal is the underwater robot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ibarkla is ranked 60,475th in the world and 2,171st in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 186,206 Standard Monetary Units.
