The Confederation of Jrustela is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Arch-Duke with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.671 billion 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with 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 33%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Head-Shagging Parrotdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, Jrustela's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, and Jrustela is building an army to protect its overseas territories. 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 38th in The East Pacific and 3,348th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
