The Five Fingered Discount of Ivetnia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a pretty cool human bean with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 10.042 billion Ivetnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ivetnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,341 trillion Vemils 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 233,143 Vemils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future leaders of Ivetnia regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, political detractors refer to a pretty cool human bean as 'that Bigtopian puppet', and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivetnia's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is drawn out sigh noise.

Ivetnia is ranked 234,477th in the world and 106th in Equilism for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 15.62 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
