The Federation of Jamestownn is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 602 million Jamestownnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education 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 Jamestownn City. The average income tax rate is 57.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Jamestownnian economy, worth 81.3 trillion Jephphs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 135,127 Jephphs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

It's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamestownn's national animal is the Tree, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Jamestownn is ranked 80,816th in the world and 3rd in The Norwegian Region Legion for Highest Economic Output, with 81.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
