The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Voba with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and rum-swilling pirates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 18.045 billion Jingdoodics are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arqua. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jingdoodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,978 trillion Gulls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,655 Gulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, punitive tariffs protect local industry, organ donation is compulsory, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Jingdood's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jingdood is ranked 32nd in The Lexicon and 115,282nd in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
