The Matriarchy of Jagada is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by the Matriarch with a fair hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.025 billion Jagites live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Religion & Spirituality and Defence are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svedal. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, procrastination is a national sport, and the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Jagada's national animal is the red dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Icon.

Jagada is ranked 7th in Gholgoth and 102,986th in the world for Best Weather, with -68 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
