The Republic of Ivolshok is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 911 million Ivolshuks are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korodsk. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ivolshokian economy, worth 106 trillion Scrips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 117,418 Scrips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, the might of the nation's military are undertaking a long march to colonisation in Brasilistan, and Brasilistanis face layers of paperwork in a different language just to visit a doctor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivolshok's national animal is the Highland Condor.

Ivolshok is ranked 168,916th in the world and 167th in The Western Isles for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 49.15 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
