The Legionary state of Jamstown is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by General Audrey pershing with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 13.919 billion Jamstownians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cape Independence. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Jamstownian economy, worth a remarkable 2,431 trillion Tacoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,699 Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse, and being General Audrey pershing has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamstown's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Followers of Eria.

Jamstown is ranked 126,838th in the world and 30th in Azure Watester Federation for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,334.95 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
