Saying a gas is an ideal gas assumes that it is under perfect conditions so that PV=nRT is true. Basically, it means there are no attractive forces between the gas molecules, and that they occupy all of the available space.

An ideal gas is a gas whose molecules don't have volume and don't interact with each other. It's a theoretical concept used to make calculations easier.
