The Republic of Festdidgea is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nirzum Radescu with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.739 billion Festdidgeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kardin Videgi. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Festdidgean economy, worth 311 trillion Dongs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,246 Dongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, t-shirts displaying a photo of Nirzum Radescu performing the Full-Monty are selling out, immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, and getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Festdidgea's national animal is the Ibis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is NO RELIGION BABYYYYY.

Festdidgea is ranked 3,273rd in the world and 112th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.61 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
