The Hazmat-Suit Wearing Land of Devonigondwana is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Adhdedus Jedud III with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 798 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 Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uglatto. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Devo economy, worth 36.2 trillion Snowballs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,327 Snowballs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, corrupt paupers spend taxpayer Snowballs on liquor and tobacco, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, and athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society. 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 162,580th in the world and 163rd in Conch Kingdom for Highest Economic Output, with 36.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
