The Nightmare State of Jagada is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Matriarch with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.227 billion Jagites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Welfare and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svedal. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Jagite economy, worth a remarkable 3,590 trillion Icons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 186,751 Icons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.
The government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, commemoration of the Great Gholgoth War costs almost as much as the war itself, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Jagada's national animal is the red dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.
