The Dictatorship of Jefferson Club is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Dominic Richardson Stewart with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 938 million Jefferson Clubians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gondor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.2%.

The very strong Jefferson Clubian economy, worth 88.1 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 93,878 Crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 418,697 per year while the poor average 13,077, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.

The booming slave trade is now government-funded, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jefferson Club's national animal is the Jaguar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Jefferson Club is ranked 72,450th in the world and 127th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Pro-Market, scoring 51 on the Rand Index.
