The Constitutional Monarchy of J Class is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Tiller with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 976 million Crew are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Healthcare, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Helm. The average income tax rate is 8.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Crew economy, worth 105 trillion Lines a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 107,693 Lines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

School lockers are filled with fancy underwear, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. J Class's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

J Class is ranked 250,244th in the world and 194th in Lands End for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.57 bananas ingested per day.
