The Garden of Earthly Delights of Jabberwocky is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sherlock Quixote with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, feral children, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.697 billion Jabberwockyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frivolia. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jabberwockyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,497 trillion Brilligs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,316 Brilligs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, and AI citizens are criticized for being robotic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jabberwocky's national animal is the Slithy Tove, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mimsy.

Jabberwocky is ranked 179,659th in the world and 477th in 10000 Islands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 92.49 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
