The Democratic Republic of Idealland is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The democratic population of 8 million Ideallandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ideallandian economy, worth 302 billion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,808 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Idealland's national animal is the eagle.

Idealland is ranked 117,093rd in the world and 5,044th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 94.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
