The Most Serene Republic of Jateros is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its feral children, fear of technology, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 310 million Jaterosites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freeland. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Jaterosite economy, worth 6.34 trillion Cifrins 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, highly specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. 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 20,442 Cifrins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new currency features full-length portraits of Leader in ermine and velvet garb, education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, and all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jateros's national animal is the Rhinoceros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jateros is ranked 632nd in the world and 1st in The Free Nations Region for Most Primitive, scoring 280.41 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
