The Technocratic United Kingdom of Jarian is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Delta the Wise with a fair hand, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 3.797 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 995 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 large, well-organized, 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 262,153 Jaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 150,818th in the world and 1st in Anime Girls for Most Armed, with 0.19 Weapons Per Person.
