The Empire of Jarenova is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Markus Voelker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.935 billion Jarenovians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jarenovan economy, worth a remarkable 1,516 trillion Jarens a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,860 Jarens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Jarenovians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarenova's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jarenova is ranked 220,344th in the world and 440th in The League for Fattest Citizens, with 9.31 Obesity Rate.
