The United Republics of Great Jergania and Jonland is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by President Ukenye with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.865 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 Arms Manufacturing.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and international tensions are high as Great Jergania and Jonland threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious 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 3rd in Holy Rome and 5,352nd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
