The Colony of Jevistan is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed population of 4.85 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.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, 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 Platinum Dollar.

Jevistan is ranked 14th in SideWalk Zone and 104,196th in the world for Best Weather, with -130 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
