The Democratic States of Ivory Gate is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 505 million Ivory Gateans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.6%.

The very strong Ivory Gatean economy, worth 29.7 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 58,795 florins, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

The credibility of anti-government demagogues is undermined by government claims that they smell like poo, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ivory Gate's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ivory Gate is ranked 103,953rd in the world and 115th in Thaecia for Most Authoritarian, with 633.09 milliStalins.
