The Republic of Jrustela is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-Duke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.935 billion Jrustelans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Public Transport and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hathinelthor. The average income tax rate is 39%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Unemployment rates have skyrocketed as businesses abandon the country in search of cheap labour, all guns must be registered, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Head-Shagging Parrotdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jrustela's national animal is the Head-Shagging Parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Stacu.
