The Republic of Infrared- is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The devout population of 1.288 billion Infrared-ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Infrared-ian economy, worth 60.5 trillion Bricks 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 47,003 Bricks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, and serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infrared-'s national animal is the emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Infrared- is ranked 77,730th in the world and 50th in Armies of Sweets for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51.62 Whatever.
