The United Republics of Great Jergania and Jonland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Ukenye with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.186 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, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LibertÓ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Jerganian economy, worth a remarkable 1,350 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 187,899 paper ducats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 821,597 per year while the poor average 27,109, a ratio of 30.3 to 1.

Military spending recently hit a new high, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in President Ukenye's bedroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, 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 31st in Holy Rome and 112,287th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -672 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
