The Error 404 Nation Not Found of Idzequitch is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zacharias Quinn with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.823 billion Quitchers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zequaya. The average income tax rate is 87.2%.

The strong Idzian economy, worth 934 trillion Glimmunds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,387 Glimmunds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Idzequitch's national animal is the Iniqa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Idzequitch is ranked 20,005th in the world and 3rd in Zentari for Most Pacifist, with 121.47 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
