Irken Society

The Control Brain

The Irken society is very hierarchical. There are several classes of Irkens which can usually be told apart by their physical appearance (see Irken Physiology). The Irken empire is ultimately ruled by the Irken control brain, which runs the Smeet hatching facility, chooses new Almighty Tallest when necessary and assigns roles to each Irken by programming their Pak.

Although Irken society seems to be highly regimented, it is possible for an Irken assigned to one class to be reassigned by the control brain to another class. There also seems to be no distinction made due to sex in assigning roles as there are several female Irken Invaders.

Day-to-day operations of the Irken Empire are dictated by the Almighty Tallest - who are the tallest Irkens alive and thus are chosen to lead. Currently there are 2 Irkens of the same height so they rule together.

When a Tallest is killed or incapacitated the control brain will choose another Tallest to take his place.

The Almighty Tallest
Not much is known or discussed regarding Irken religion. The Irkens do not seem to be a religious people, but they do seem to have an affinity for a green monkey idol which appears periodically throughout the series.
