The Monarchy of Greater Eireann is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Veia O'Dalaigh with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.439 billion Eireannians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Byzantium. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Eireannian economy, worth a remarkable 1,683 trillion Guinnesses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 261,460 Guinnesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Greater Eireann's national animal is the Eastern Screech Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eireannian Orthodox Christianity.

Greater Eireann is ranked 81,038th in the world and 16th in The Confederacy of Free Lands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 48.22 on the Rand Index.
