The Five Fingered Discount of Ivetnia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by a pretty cool human bean with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 9.143 billion Ivetnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ivetnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,058 trillion Vemils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,113 Vemils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, the comic book series 'A pretty cool human bean and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivetnia's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is drawn out sigh noise.

Ivetnia is ranked 244,455th in the world and 117th in Equilism for Most Primitive, scoring -862.38 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
