it refers to gases at STP- standard temperature and pressure

Ideal gases are all theoretical. They are made up of point-sized randomly moving particles whose interactions are perfectly elastic collisions, meaning no energy loss or gain occurs when the particles hit each other. Ideal gases also don't take into account intramolecular forces and volume created by e- repulsion within molecules, which is why the most accurate pressure of gases is better calculated with (P + n2a / V2)(V- nb) = nRT.

Ideal gases have negligible volume, no attractive or repulsive forces, random movement, and perfectly elastic collisions. Most gases behave close to the ideal with high temperature and low pressure; hence an ideal gas is theoretical since PV=nRT shows that pressure typically increases with temperature.
