The Colony of United Jay Emirates is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.95 billion Tropical Islesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubai. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Basket Weaving.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and cats are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Jay Emirates's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Platinum Dollar.

United Jay Emirates is ranked 18th in SideWalk Zone and 53,712th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.36 Stalins.
