The Komar of IDEVK is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arya JB with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.128 billion Dîves 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 large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Şingal. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dîv economy, worth 272 trillion Duroes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,112 Duroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, the government is spending billions of taxpayer Duroes to support "struggling" industries, and Arya JB is plotting to coup the Pacific (IDEVK has found 1 easter egg). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IDEVK's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Týronism.

IDEVK is ranked 97,696th in the world and 14th in Talonia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 160,701 Standard Monetary Units.
