The Colony of Jevistan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.38 billion Tropical Islesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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.

Cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, untold millions of Silver Ounces are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, skateparks can be found in every city, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. 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 20th in SideWalk Zone and 109,707th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 7 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
