The United Republics of Great Jergania and Jonland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President John Ukenye with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.718 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 large, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LibertÓ. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', more and more students are taking up a career in medicine, and citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem. Great Jergania and Jonland's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is no longer used at the state level, and its currency is the paper ducat.

Great Jergania and Jonland is ranked 1st in Holy Rome and 2,602nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 303 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
