The Democratic Republic of Izmedu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gabrijel Papic-Papratovic with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.798 billion Izmeduans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vodiznad. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Izmeduan economy, worth 574 trillion Lagars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 53,242 Lagars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, every week is blindness awareness week, Gabrijel Papic-Papratovic panders to nontraditional families, and the state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Izmedu's national animal is the Ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Izmedu is ranked 7,208th in the world and 3rd in The Republican Antilles for Most Influential, scoring 5,392 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
