The Colony of Jevistan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.607 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.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, punitive tariffs protect local industry, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 15,334th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 156 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
