The Radioactive Republic of Jasque is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Citizen Amaneus Lachance with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 31.761 billion Jasqueans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chernobyl. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Jasquean economy, worth a remarkable 7,954 trillion Becquerels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 250,435 Becquerels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Chernobyl" t-shirts, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Jasque's national animal is the Green Glowing Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Jasque is ranked 214,902nd in the world and 16th in The New Meritocracy for Most Authoritarian, with 168.29 milliStalins.
