The Free Land of Devionsa is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The People's Servant with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.795 billion Devionsans 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 prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia Soon. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The all-consuming Devionsan economy, worth 233 trillion Riverings 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 and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 129,952 Riverings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Devionsa's national animal is the Free Man, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pantheism.

Devionsa is ranked 85,325th in the world and 19th in Lorania for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 141,133 Standard Monetary Units.
