The Constitutional Republic of Iandrul is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Jackson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 5.217 billion Iandrulians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westerfall. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iandrulian economy, worth 861 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 165,108 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

New arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iandrul's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Iandrul is ranked 190,240th in the world and 132nd in The League for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.47 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
