The Generally Decent Nation of Jawbreakeria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by DC with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.686 billion Jawbreakers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southcastle. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Jawbreakerian economy, worth 171 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 101,626 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

'I'm Coming Out' has shot to the top of the nation's music charts, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, saying "don't do anything that DC wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jawbreakeria's national animal is the alien, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Jawbreakeria.

Jawbreakeria is ranked 38,450th in the world and 502nd in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,389.53 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
