The Republic of Iristead is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.553 billion Iristeadians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iristeadian economy, worth 545 trillion Cereses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 153,545 Cereses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Iristead's national animal is the Blue Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Iristead is ranked 5,840th in the world and 251st in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 91.19 on the Human Development Index.
