The Confederacy of Jebilandia is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, avant-garde cinema, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.499 billion Jebilandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Education and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Jebilandian economy, worth 650 trillion marcoes a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 260,407 marcoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,781,315 per year while the poor average 13,732, a ratio of 129 to 1.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Jebilandia's national animal is the mastodon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jebilandia is ranked 34,535th in the world and 54th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Stationary, with 425.92686629552 Days.
