The Federated Great Zoghriship of Jef and JAMAL the Squa and West Garbanzo is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Jeff Von Jef with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 887 million Beanmen are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gak. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse JAMALIAN economy, worth 86.3 trillion Dzhiffis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 97,336 Dzhiffis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, Jeff Von Jef claims to be the epitome of family values, and the government violently suppresses separatist movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jef and JAMAL the Squa and West Garbanzo's national animal is the Can of Garbanzo Beans, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jef and JAMAL the Squa and West Garbanzo is ranked 18,902nd in the world and 6th in Social Technocratic Union for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 4,763.31 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
