The Gumiho of Jar Wattinree is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Primarch Iudicant with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.914 billion Jar Wattinrae 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 Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Requiem. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Jar Wattinrae economy, worth a remarkable 1,532 trillion E-Wattinrae denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 311,923 E-Wattinrae denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The question of 'what is Primarch Iudicant's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, the government is pouring billions into replacement brains, and no one born in Jar Wattinree can fix a leaky faucet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jar Wattinree's national animal is the Wattinrae kitsune, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Hristorin.

Jar Wattinree is ranked 35,372nd in the world and 927th in the Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,609.59 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
