The Antique Shopping Mall of Jahka is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Papa John with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 20.607 billion Jahx enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Spirituality. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Jahx economy, worth a remarkable 3,912 trillion Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Soda Sales, Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 189,866 Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, bins outnumber trees in city parks, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, and boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Jahka's national animal is the Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Jahka is ranked 174,051st in the world and 634th in Europeia for Most Developed, scoring 52.26 on the Human Development Index.
