The Democratic Republic of Ilefeb is a huge, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 647 million Ilefeberians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.7%.

The thriving Ilefeberian economy, worth 50.1 trillion Pogs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 77,416 Pogs, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ilefeb's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ilefeb is ranked 34,599th in the world and 102nd in Thaecia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 140.36 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
