Ikea Rike

Population304 million

CurrencyKrona
AnimalPickled Herring

The Commonwealth of Ikea Rike is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 304 million Ikeae are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The powerhouse Ikean economy, worth 31.0 trillion Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 102,039 Kronor, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 520,108 per year while the poor average 11,041, a ratio of 47.1 to 1.

Major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, big game hunters travel to Ikea Rike to try their hand at shark-shooting, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ikea Rike's national animal is the Pickled Herring, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Ikea Rike is ranked 34,641st in the world and 1,777th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,323.02 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
