The All-Hugging Kiwi Land of Ignuei is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Anlandez Ghiottio Hovlinbalt with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.095 billion Ignueians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caudia City. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ignueian economy, worth 129 trillion Hennins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 118,428 Hennins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation sends criminals home to think about what they did, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ignuei's national animal is the white kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ignuei is ranked 220,861st in the world and 5,926th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -20.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
