The Republic of Jeltistan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jelte with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.292 billion Jeltistanians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philipstown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Jeltistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,795 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 285,335 guilders, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, the diplomatic corps stinks, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, and owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation. Crime is totally unknown. Jeltistan's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jeltistan is ranked 1,311th in the world and 48th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 31,070.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
