The Hazmat-Suit Wearing Land of Devonigondwana is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Adhdedus Jedud III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 950 million Spuds 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uglatto. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Devo economy, worth 48.0 trillion Snowballs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,558 Snowballs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, the government thinks Spuds can achieve social cohesion by drinking soda together, and snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Devonigondwana's national animal is the sea dandelion, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Devonigondwana is ranked 34,654th in the world and 73rd in Conch Kingdom for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,862.15 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
