Stone Ira

Population4.196 billion

CapitalOld Stone


The 𝕊𝕦𝕡𝕣𝕖𝕞𝕖 𝔹𝕒𝕣𝕥 of Stone Ira is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Unknown with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.196 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Stone. The average income tax rate is 79.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Unknown economy, worth 671 trillion IRAS a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 160,009 IRAS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, and the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stone Ira's national animal is the Unknown, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Unknown.

Stone Ira is ranked 953rd in the world and 342nd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 89,273 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
