The Faisteach Impireach Rodinia of Ierna is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Uachtaras Rodinius with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.143 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hibernia. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iernan economy, worth 264 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 Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 123,432 Valeras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen', bicyclists are banned from major roads, and families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up. 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 Atheism.

Ierna is ranked 4,991st in the world and 20th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 92.2 on the Human Development Index.
