Stone Ira

Population4.208 billion

CapitalOld Stone


The 𝕊𝕦𝕡𝕣𝕖𝕞𝕖 𝔹𝕒𝕣𝕥 of Stone Ira is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Unknown with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.208 billion Unknowns 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Stone. The average income tax rate is 79.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Unknown economy, worth 680 trillion IRAS a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,719 IRAS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Thrift shops are closing their doors, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stone Ira's national animal is the Unknown, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Unknown.

Stone Ira is ranked 14,956th in the world and 821st in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 85,374.37 Standard Monetary Units.
