The Republic of Irab is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 289 million Irabis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Irabi economy, worth 15.2 trillion dinars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,462 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, Bambi has been banned, and a few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Irab's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Irab is ranked 146,841st in the world and 6,807th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.67 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
