The People's Republic of Jarvsand is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Anna Kozlov with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.451 billion Jarvsandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Arvsfort. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jarvsandian economy, worth 458 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 132,773 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, behind every local dictator is a Jarvsandian advisor whispering in their ear, Jarvsandians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarvsand's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Jarvsand is ranked 152,861st in the world and 7,024th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 5.22 Prayers Per Hour.
