The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Voba with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 16.317 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arqua. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Jingdood's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Gull.

Jingdood is ranked 22nd in The Lexicon and 122,134th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -51 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
