The Kingdom of Princely Irbis is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, fear of technology, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 254 million Irbisians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.5%.

The sizeable but inefficient Irbisian economy, worth 9.77 trillion thalers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,476 thalers, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Many aides in Leader's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, and noble feuds don't end until one side gets their point across. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Princely Irbis's national animal is the Irbis, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Princely Irbis is ranked 33,524th in the world and 1,648th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,009.93 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
