The Hazmat-Suit Wearing Land of Devonigondwana is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Adhdedus Jedud III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 943 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 Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uglatto. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Devo economy, worth 47.4 trillion Snowballs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 50,236 Snowballs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists are forbidden to enter Native Devo lands, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, and human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity. 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 220,399th in the world and 422nd in Conch Kingdom for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.32 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
