The Free Communist States of Jezland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.005 billion Jezlish love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wimbledon. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.
The sizeable but stagnant Jezlandian economy, worth 93.5 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,345 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Extreme political groups are outlawed, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, and Jez panders to nontraditional families. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jezland's national animal is the Cod, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
