The Confederacy of Saint Ignis is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 755 million Saint Ignisi are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ignisia. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Saint Ignisi economy, worth 49.5 trillion Ignis 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 65,560 Ignis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Ignis's national animal is the Ignisi White Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saint Ignis is ranked 34,301st in the world and 311th in The Communist Bloc for Most Developed, scoring 63.95 on the Human Development Index.
