The United Patriotic States of Ivorica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dictator Ronald Morgon with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.527 billion Ivoricans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Columbus. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ivorican economy, worth 763 trillion Ivorican Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 216,589 Ivorican Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, and blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivorica's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bunch of religions.

Ivorica is ranked 8,717th in the world and 4th in Lezra for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
