The Dictatorship of South Ireni is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin III with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 883 million South Irenians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novac. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.8%.

The all-consuming South Irenian economy, worth 111 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,354 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 357,175 per year while the poor average 35,762, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Ireni's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Ireni is ranked 154,517th in the world and 4th in The United Nations of Relative Logic for Largest Populations, with 883 million Capita.
