The Colony of Jevistan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.26 billion Tropical Islesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the internet has been placed under government control, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme. 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 12th in SideWalk Zone and 106,372nd in the world for Best Weather, with -126 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
