The Empire of Jaosaia is a small, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 40 million Koiyney have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 16.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Koyen economy, worth 1.81 trillion teies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,189 teies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A nickname of "Doctor Death" probably indicates a decorated war hero, 75% of the words in government-funded "Super Fun Maths Games" are probably inaccurate, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jaosaia's national animal is the banwan hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Jaosaia is ranked 117,380th in the world and 4,863rd in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 66 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
