The Kaiserreich of Jarvikan is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 753 million Jarvikanians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalmarsa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.0%.

The thriving Jarvikanian economy, worth 70.9 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,167 Kronor, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, brains have been removed from lists of best brain foods, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarvikan's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jarvikan is ranked 59,418th in the world and 24th in The United Empires of Carson for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,937.56 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
