The Democratic Republic of -jEw tOPiA is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 996 million -jEw tOPiAians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the moneypit. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The frighteningly efficient -jEw tOPiAian economy, worth 114 trillion Shekels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 114,783 Shekels, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 584,698 per year while the poor average 12,436, a ratio of 47.0 to 1.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'common household slavedogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. -jEw tOPiA's national animal is the common household slave, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

-jEw tOPiA is ranked 72,091st in the world and 3,486th in Lazarus for Most Cultured, scoring 66 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
