The Republic of Jrustela is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Arch-Duke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.152 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 devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hathinelthor. The average income tax rate is 38%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Jrustela is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. 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.
