The Cosmopolitan State of The IGER Civilization is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the SRI Command Authority with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.516 billion Citizens of the IGER enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visp on Planet Earth. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient IGER economy, worth a remarkable 5,294 trillion IGER-Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 423,033 IGER-Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genetically Reconstructed Mammoth is one of the most popular forenames in The IGER Civilization, the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The IGER Civilization's national animal is the genetically reconstructed Mammoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is scienctific atheism.

The IGER Civilization is ranked 14,857th in the world and 1st in SICON for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,840.18 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
