The Domain of IRTAE is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Primum with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.271 billion Parsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kapitola. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Irtaean economy, worth a remarkable 1,886 trillion DEMS 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 228,028 DEMS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding IRTAE, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IRTAE's national animal is the Swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

IRTAE is ranked 236,908th in the world and 452nd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -13.7 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
