The Colony of Jevistan is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 1.176 billion, 1.175 billion of whom are zombies, 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.

Nudity is frowned upon, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. 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 5th in SideWalk Zone and 3,223rd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 16 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Jevistan is currently considering its options.
