The North Sea Federation of Greater Eireann is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Veia O'Dalaigh with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.5 billion Eireannians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Byzantium. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Eireannian economy, worth a remarkable 2,481 trillion Guinnesses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 291,977 Guinnesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", snap elections are called over every minor impasse, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. 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 Reformed Orthodox Christianity.

Greater Eireann is ranked 6,378th in the world and 1st in The Confederacy of Free Lands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,389.89 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
