The Free Land of Jacobs Cattlebean is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 5.83 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 71%, 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.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, refugees from other nations are flocking to Jacobs Cattlebean's border, and Jacobs Cattlebean's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over Jacobs Cattlebean. 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 1,036th in the world for Best Weather, with 437 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
