The Colony of Jevistan is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 5.199 billion Tropical Islesians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jevistani Center. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Woodchip Exports.

The government spends millions of Silver Ounces every year prosecuting spammers, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jevistan's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Silver Ounce.

Jevistan is ranked 7th in SideWalk Zone and 4,772nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
