The Republic of Festdidgea is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nirzum Radescu with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.154 billion Festdidgeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kardin Videgi. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Festdidgean economy, worth 153 trillion Dongs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,245 Dongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Dong treacle machine, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, incidents involving lethal string attacks have gone way up, and people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Festdidgea's national animal is the Ibis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is NO RELIGION BABYYYYY.

Festdidgea is ranked 63,403rd in the world and 2,800th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
