The Card Farming Nation of Stone Ira is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Unknown with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.412 billion Unknowns are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The North Star. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Unknown economy, worth 144 trillion IRAS a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,456 IRAS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Many in Stone Ira are born in the purple, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, and the nation's best artists are considered pretty easy to beat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stone Ira's national animal is the Unknown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unknown.

Stone Ira is ranked 131,734th in the world and 6,666th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
