The Earth Force Construct of Io Jumpgate is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Susanna Luchenko with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.194 billion Earthforce Alliance Citizens are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The large, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earthdome. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.5%.

The powerhouse Io Jumpgatean economy, worth 615 trillion Earth Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 60,412 Earth Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 193,145 per year while the poor average 14,351, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, Io Jumpgate has designated Earthdome as its capital city, and President Susanna Luchenko has just been declared ruler of Io Jumpgate in an international press conference. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Io Jumpgate's national animal is the duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Io Jumpgate is ranked 149,797th in the world and 6th in Babylon 5 for Most Average, scoring 34.6 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
