The Union of Imperial Republics of Ivorica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Jonh Claswe with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.176 billion Ivoricans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Columbus. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ivorican economy, worth 694 trillion Ivorican Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 218,757 Ivorican Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Lavish state dinners in New Columbus are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivorica's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bunch of religions.

Ivorica is ranked 87,763rd in the world and 38th in Lezra for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 732.19 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
