The Constitutional Empire of Ivy Rekkia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by HM Óscar Miguelito Cardoso IV with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.317 billion Rekkashians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mollinet-Crayssac. The average income tax rate is 92.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ivy Rekkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,757 trillion Qonias a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,263 Qonias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

A handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, students do more community service than homework, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivy Rekkia's national animal is the Rekkashian Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ivy Rekkia is ranked 12,359th in the world and 580th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 155,263.79 Standard Monetary Units.
