The Absolute Monarchy of Kingdom of Irhk is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Willem II with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The compassionate population of 10.699 billion irhkians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zerrik. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Irhkian economy, worth a remarkable 2,096 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 195,926 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Solid-gold toilets are Irhkian prisons' least expensive furnishings, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of Irhk's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kingdom of Irhk is ranked 95,261st in the world and 34th in Novo Brasil for Most Politically Free, scoring 61.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
