The Colony of United Jay Emirates is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.928 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.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, United Jay Emirates has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. 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 2nd in SideWalk Zone and 1,908th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 45 on the Enoch Index.
