The Federation of The Devtopian Commune is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Communal Council with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.117 billion Devtopians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peoples City. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Devtopian economy, worth 300 trillion Ferdishes 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 96,562 Ferdishes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize The Devtopian Commune's beaches, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Peoples City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Devtopian Commune's national animal is the Calico Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Devtopian Commune is ranked 158,193rd in the world and 30th in Gamer Commune for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -9.33 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
