The Matriarchy of Idezvoya is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Josephine II with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The compassionate, devout population of 4.577 billion Idezvoyans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Natangrad. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Idezvoyan economy, worth 340 trillion Devoys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is 74,400 Devoys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, the Man in the Plastic Mask has been imprisoned in the Capital Penitentiary, and there's no such thing as a safe bet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Idezvoya's national animal is the Lioness, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Polytheism.

Idezvoya is ranked 162,186th in the world and 158th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Black Market, with 96.2 billion Standard Monetary Units.
