The Colony of Jevistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.259 billion 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 Education, Commerce, 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.

Religious education is a new government priority, the government is seen to favor Catholics, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. 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 Platinum Dollar.

Jevistan is ranked 17th in SideWalk Zone and 121,921st in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -51 Whatever.
