The Most Serene Republic of Jeri Ryan is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 5.145 billion Jeri Ryanites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unimatrix 01. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Jeri Ryanite economy, worth 66.2 trillion nanoprobe hyposprays a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 12,870 nanoprobe hyposprays, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, and Jeri Ryan recently decided against having a capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jeri Ryan's national animal is the borg, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jeri Ryan is ranked 36,243rd in the world and 2nd in Subreality for Most Extreme, scoring 35.91 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
