The Confederation of Jrustela is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Arch-Duke with a fair hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.481 billion, 78 million of whom are zombies, Jrustelans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Public Transport and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hathinelthor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Artists are pillars of society, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. 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.

Jrustela is ranked 35th in The East Pacific and 3,075th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Jrustela is currently researching a cure.
