The Free Land of Jacobs Cattlebean is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 5.82 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 72%, 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.

An enormous health awareness programme is underway, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, burglary is widely regarded as the national sport, and people are moving into treehouses in record numbers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 16,429th in the world for Largest Populations, with 5,820 Capita (millions).
