The Republic of Itracul6 is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 243 million Itracul6ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Itracul6ian economy, worth 3.29 trillion baht a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 13,533 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itracul6's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Itracul6 is ranked 199,098th in the world and 227th in Resuscitation for Most Developed, scoring 43.39 on the Human Development Index.
