The Empire of Jamais Vu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 35.926 billion Jamais Vuans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Jamais Vuan economy, worth a remarkable 3,300 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,874 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, the atmosphere in Jamais Vuan boardrooms is turning more gay, and protestors are soaking piles of Credits in blood to make a point about government incomes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamais Vu's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jamais Vu is ranked 258,568th in the world and 12,414th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.7 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
