The Kingdom of Javacam is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 728 million Javacamians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, 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 Thou shall not slit my throat. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Javacamian economy, worth 36.2 trillion rupees 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 49,769 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Thou shall not slit my throat, the world outside is only known of in folklore, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Javacam's national animal is the dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Javacam is ranked 139,721st in the world and 191st in The Free Nations Region for Most Primitive, scoring -66.24 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
