The Federation of Izhitsa is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Matvey Karamovo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.594 billion Izhitsans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kherhorod. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Izhitsan economy, worth 653 trillion Novrevnas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 142,257 Novrevnas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, and blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Izhitsa's national animal is the seagull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Izhitsan Orthodox Christianity.

Izhitsa is ranked 229,673rd in the world and 39th in Independent Order for Fattest Citizens, with 5.65 Obesity Rate.
