|Leader||Árd Rí Rodinius|
|Animal||Great Irish Elk|
The Impireach Cheilteach of Ierna is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Árd Rí Rodinius with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.472 billion Iernans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hibernia. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Iernan economy, worth 460 trillion Valeras 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 Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 132,755 Valeras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, and everyone apparently sends Árd Rí Rodinius hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ierna's national animal is the Great Irish Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.
