Irk, a planet in the Xeno Galaxy, just north of Rigel 7, is ہوم to a species of aliens known as the Irkens. Irkens are a somewhat small alien species with sensitive green skin, well-developed brains, and itchy trigger fingers. They have come to be known as many things including "Galactic Terrorists", "Scourge of the Galaxy", "Irken Mafia", "Dick Cheney Worshippers", "Alien Roach Farm", "The Green Communists", "Oppressors", "Ultra Right-Wing Bantha Fodder", "Republican Scum", and "Moronic Aliens Who Think That Watching Dubya Make An پچھواڑے, گدا Of Himself On National ویژن ٹیلی Is مزید Entertaining Than Watching SNL". Despite the negative press from the rest of the the galaxy, the Irkens have become well-established throughout the galaxy, from opening فاسٹ فوڈ restaurants like Shloogorgh's to conquering various planets and enslaving the planet's inhabitants for the fun of it (their exact motive for conquering various planets left and right is to this day, unknown). Although the Irkens have a ہوم planet, they prefer to operate from their سٹار, ستارہ fleet that orbits whatever planet they plan to conquer. Their major operations take place in an Irken capital ship called The Massive, which hides a vast array of weapons, salty snacks, doughnuts, and whatnot. The Irken Empire has a rather odd way of functioning and every Irken has a job to do in order for the empire's plans for galactic domination to take place.
Irkithiniousus domminatious(Irkens) are small green aliens from the planet Irk. These curious creatures have an unhealthy obsession with taking over the galaxy(s) and enslaving the inhabitants of other worlds forcing them to do their bidding. This alien species first appeared during the Jurassic Period (earth time), and it wasn't until the سال 5820BC that they became civilized.
Irkens are believed, سے طرف کی many paranormal investigators, biologists, and cryptozoologists to be descendants of a now extinct water dwelling tadpole-like creature known as Irkilitus Flotas that is thought to have first appeared on the planet irk millions of years ago(earth time).
Irkens currently have an odd way of reproducing. They are apparently cloned سے طرف کی a large machine, programmed with a desire to conquer other worlds, and دیا an Irken survival backpack. It is believed though, that before Irk's "Techno Revolution", during the time that the Irkens were still evolving, that they reproduced asexually, although it is possible that they still, despite asexual reproduction, dated. However, it is possible that Irkens can reproduce sexually.(i'm copying and pasting!)
Irkens can be either male یا female. Although both male and female Irkens look very similar, there are several key factors that tell them apart.
* Male Irkens have fairly straight antennae with only one kink while the antennae of females tend to curl.
* مزید female Irkens are known to have the semi-rare purple eyes than males. However, only males have been seen with the ultra-rare green eyes.
* Male Irkens are known to be مزید aggressive, while females are better at "keeping their cool".
* Female Irkens tend to be مزید strategic and have a better attention span.
* Female Irkens are extremely rare, only a few have been shown over the course of the دکھائیں
There are some days that major Irken military action took place and these are considered sacred to the Irken Empire. The only problem is that most of these historical days were ruined سے طرف کی Invader Zim. They include:
* Horrible Painful Overload Day(ZIM Related)
* Horrible Painful Overload دن 2(ZIM related)
* Operation:Impending Doom 1 (screwed up سے طرف کی Zim)
* Operation:Impending Doom 2 (screwed up سے طرف کی Zim)
* The Foodening
Powerful as it is, the Irken Empire is not without its enemies. Other powerful interstellar entities, such as the Neosapien Commonwealth, the Gordanians, and the [Resisty] routinely challenge the Irkens for galactic supremacy. Border clashes and all-out battles are frequent, especially in the mysterious frontiers of Unknown Space, where there are many newly-discovered planets up for grabs. In spite of their less-than-competent leadership, the Irken Empire does a good enough job of fighting off the other factions to keep the status quo; in fact, unbeknownst to the general public, the government actually encourages fighting an eternal war against the other empires, as a means of bolstering the economy and keeping patriotism strong. This does not mean that there is any kind of friendship between them, though; the leaders of each empire frequently meet via hologram to exchange crude insults and gratuitous "yo momma" jokes.
Partisan and criminal organisations, such as the Space Pirates, the Resisty, and the Men in Black are also a thorn in the empire's side. Their clandestine operations make them particularly difficult to track, much to the Tallest's frustration. Special black-ops divisions have been formed to locate and eliminate such groups, with varying degrees of success. مزید organised groups, such as the Jedi Order, and the Galactic Federation have also caused trouble for the Irkens at various points in time. The Jedi problem eventually solved itself.
Finally, single individuals, such as the rogue Invaders Tak and Zim, space hunters (eg., Samus Aran), Steve Ballmer, and others can prove considerable nuisances to the Empire. How a single person can cause so much trouble to such a powerful faction is questionable; many believe that the government tries to demonise certain individuals as a means of uniting the populace. Either that, یا the guys in charge just really, really don't like those people.
Below is a فہرست of some of the Irken Empire's most notorious and persistent foes:
* Agent Scully and Agent Mulder of the FBI
That son of a کتیا, کتيا Mulder knows too much! - Sizz-Lorr
* The Men in Black (especially Agents جے and Kay)
Oh come on, we're the "biggest scum in the universe" just because we go around conquering planets and enslaving their inhabitants and forcing them to build Irken technology?!
- Almighty Tallest Purple
That damn Stephenie Meyer ultimately ruined vampires forever! They are now goddamn faeries! - General Mek
* The Resisty
Those damn nerfherders shot at our flagship, The Massive, and I never even bought laser damage insurance!
- Almighty Tallest Red
* Invader Zim
That bantha-brain has done worse things to the Irken Empire than Britney Spears has done to the موسیقی industry, so don't even ask!!
- Invader Tak
* Space Pirates
Sure, they talk tough when they're fighting us, but send a few ninjas after them, and they run off like scared little girls.
- Anonymous Irken Starfighter Pilot
* Chuck Norris
Anything but Chuck Norris!
- Invader Zee
- Invader Storm (O.o who knew?)
The Irken government is based on a dictatorship where one rules over the others. They also have a rather controversial way of choosing their leaders that the New Republic consider to be a form of "white supremacy." The determination of the Irkens' leader depends on the candidate's height. The tallest Irken automatically becomes the leader of the others, یا the "Almighty Tallest" as called سے طرف کی the Irkens. The job of the Almighty Tallest is to keep watch over the other Irkens and make sure that they are doing their job. They also oversee major invasions and other major events. (see "Historical Days") گزشتہ Almighty Tallests such as "Almighty Tallest Nigzarvich" (who is now the CEO of the Solana Galaxy's most مقبول فاسٹ فوڈ chain, Galaxy Burger) have help the Irken Empire flourish and become successful in conquering many planets and gaining much wealth. The present leaders, Almighty Tallest Red and Almighty Tallest Purple (there are currently 2 leaders because Red and Purple are both the same height) are not the best leaders the Irkens have had. آپ could say that that Red and Purple are the Irkens' answer to planet Earth's past president, Dubya. Instead of keeping the Irken Empire running smoothly, they have been known to instead relax, eat, and huff kittens for hours on end without stopping. Though incompetent and lazy, Almighty Tallest Red and Almighty Tallest Purple have managed to keep the Irken Empire running as well as keeping Invader Zim from ruining major events and social gatherings.
