The Babylon 5 Construct of Epsilon 3 Jumpgate is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.133 billion Babylonians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Sector. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The all-consuming Epsilon 3 Jumpgatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,707 trillion jumps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is 77,162 jumps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 303,882 per year while the poor average 13,292, a ratio of 22.9 to 1.

More and more students are taking up a career in medicine, laws are littered with references to cheese, a chain of pubs that cater solely to children has recently been unveiled, and scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Epsilon 3 Jumpgate's national animal is the dark matter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Epsilon 3 Jumpgate is ranked 156,952nd in the world and 7th in Babylon 5 for Most Average, scoring 33.76 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
