The United Republics of Great Jergania and Jonland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Ukenye with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.104 billion Jerganians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Law & Order and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LibertÓ. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Jerganian economy, worth a remarkable 1,090 trillion paper ducats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 178,666 paper ducats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 737,826 per year while the poor average 28,444, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Great Jergania and Jonland's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is no longer used at the state level.

Great Jergania and Jonland is ranked 23rd in Holy Rome and 42,653rd in the world for Most Devout, scoring 18 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
