The Federal Republic of Ikheria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Sergey Lebankov with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.442 billion Ikherians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yeltsingrad. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ikherian economy, worth 133 trillion Rubel Euros a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,747 Rubel Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

If foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Ikheria, lending money has become a major liability, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ikheria's national animal is the Flying Steinlaus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Merhabaism.

Ikheria is ranked 11,127th in the world and 88th in Europeia for Most Devout, with 2,070.45 Prayers Per Hour.
