The Technocracy of Jediahlonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Roy Trenneman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.233 billion Jediahlonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Infotechnica. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.

The government seizes all major gold finds, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jediahlonia's national animal is the Tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Atheism, and its currency is the Funkle.

Jediahlonia is ranked 3,473rd in The North Pacific and 77,355th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -8 on the Hayek Index.
