The Free Land of Jacobs Cattlebean is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 6.003 billion Jacobs Cattlebeanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Religion & Spirituality, with areas such as Commerce and Healthcare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jacobs Cattlebean City. The average income tax rate is 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, all prisons have been eliminated, and concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Jacobs Cattlebean's national animal is the Turkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Tiny Ferret.

Jacobs Cattlebean is ranked 1st in Jacobs Cattlebean and 120,936th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -230 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
