The Confederacy of Infinite ikea is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 451 million Ikeans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Infinite ikean economy, worth 11.4 trillion Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 25,351 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infinite ikea's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infinite ikea is ranked 199,409th in the world and 7,524th in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring -96.2 on the Rand Index.
