The Republic of Ibarkla is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kōki Yanagi with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.364 billion Ibarklans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caparce. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ibarklan economy, worth 195 trillion roboRIOs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 143,305 roboRIOs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Prime Minister Kōki Yanagi's bedroom. Crime is totally unknown. Ibarkla's national animal is the underwater robot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ibarkla is ranked 11,378th in the world and 562nd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,554.13 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
