The Republic of Ibarkla is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kōki Yanagi with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.352 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caparce. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ibarklan economy, worth 192 trillion roboRIOs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 142,530 roboRIOs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and Ibarklan actors literally work from cradle to grave. Crime is totally unknown. Ibarkla's national animal is the underwater robot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ibarkla is ranked 239,778th in the world and 9,107th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 25.91 Whatever.
