The Impireach Cheilteach of Ierna is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Árd Rí Rodinius with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.788 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 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Iernan economy, worth 688 trillion Valeras a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,852 Valeras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The once prosperous capital is in utter decline, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Ierna, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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.

Ierna is ranked 21,875th in the world and 5th in New Western Empire for Most Extreme, scoring 38.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
