The Dictatorship of South Ireni is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 704 million South Irenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novac. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.4%.

The powerhouse South Irenian economy, worth 77.6 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 110,290 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

The SIBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the state conscripts sociopathic orphan girls to train as professional assassins, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Ireni's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Ireni is ranked 183,639th in the world and 13th in The United Nations of Relative Logic for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
