The Socialist Commonwealth of Jambizana is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Lord Protector with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.537 billion Jambizanans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waldenia. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Jambizanan economy, worth a remarkable 1,881 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 178,555 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Phoenixball fields, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, posters remind people that 'Hoarding Mushrooms Is Theft', and the government is funneling billions into Cape Jambizana following the shuttle crash. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jambizana's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is to do good.

Jambizana is ranked 104,275th in the world and 3,096th in Balder for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.56 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
