The People's Republic of Irrigo is a very large, genial nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 125 million Irrigoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Irrigoan economy, worth 1.39 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 11,087 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Irrigo's national animal is the ocelot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Irrigo is ranked 103,101st in the world and 80th in Soviet Democracy for Most Stationary, with 30.27426534668 Days.
