The Colony of United Jay Emirates is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.155 billion Tropical Islesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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.

Cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, the government spends millions of Platinum Dollars every year prosecuting spammers, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. 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 12th in SideWalk Zone and 4,962nd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 102.899 Insults Per Minute (net).
