What constitutes as an ideal gas?

An ideal gas is an approximation of gases that helps to model how they behave. By definition, ideal gas molecules do not attract or repel each other and the molecules themselves take up zero volume.

Ideal gases are highly unlikely to occur in the natural world, but are useful for calculations in class and theory.

How do properties of different ideal gases vary if they are essentially hypothetical?

They are (hypothetical) gases that do not have many interactions and take up very little space (and follow the gas laws perfectly). They are considered hypothetical since they do not occur naturally (very often).
