The Commonwealth of Ikea Rike is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.012 billion Ikeae are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shopholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.
The powerhouse Ikean economy, worth 104 trillion Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 103,540 Kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 559,747 per year while the poor average 9,916, a ratio of 56.4 to 1.
Scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, and much of Ikea Rike's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ikea Rike's national animal is the Pickled Herring, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
