The Technocratic United Kingdom of Jarian is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Delta the Wise with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, feral children, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 6.312 billion Jarianites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akiba. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jarianite economy, worth a remarkable 1,655 trillion Jaris 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 262,251 Jaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and the new Jarianite-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage. Crime is totally unknown. Jarian's national animal is the Android, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Jarian is ranked 208,476th in the world and 3rd in Anime Girls for Most Armed, with 0.19 Weapons Per Person.
