The Republic of Jrustela is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Arch-Duke with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.235 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, corrupt 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. The average income tax rate is 36%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, skateparks can be found in every city, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. 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 22nd in The East Pacific and 996th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 35 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
