The Éireann Republic of Kilkire is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Stephen Brugha with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.544 billion Kilkirians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kilkirian economy, worth 909 trillion -----s a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,044 -----s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Kilkire, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly. Crime is totally unknown. Kilkire's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Secularism.

Kilkire is ranked 2,204th in the world and 116th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 42,445 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
