The Free States of Jefferson Proctorate is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Governor Bradley Johnson with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.991 billion Jefferson Proctorateans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yreka. The average income tax rate is 29.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jefferson Proctoratean economy, worth 348 trillion Jefferson Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,528 Jefferson Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Advanced mathematics books explain how two plus two equals five, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, the Mockingbird is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction, and students do more community service than homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jefferson Proctorate's national animal is the Mockingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of the Nine.

Jefferson Proctorate is ranked 287,523rd in the world and 181st in The Free Nations Region for Most Primitive, scoring -216.05 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
