The United Republics of Great Jergania and Jonland is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by President Ukenye with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.191 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 government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass -- 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, all streets are privately owned toll roads, doves are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, and the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. 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 57th in Holy Rome and 102,019th in the world for Safest, scoring 18.799 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
