The Radioactive Republic of Jasque is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Citizen Amaneus Lachance with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 32.3 billion Jasqueans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chernobyl. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Jasquean economy, worth a remarkable 8,168 trillion Becquerels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 252,883 Becquerels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Chernobyl" t-shirts, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Jasque's national animal is the Green Glowing Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Jasque is ranked 173,989th in the world and 13th in The New Meritocracy for Most Average, scoring 31.49 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
