The Empire of Jenha is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 363 million Jenhans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyōji. The average income tax rate is 42.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jenhan economy, worth 42.1 trillion bihs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,928 bihs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, doctors ask for written consent before making eye contact with patients, girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jenha's national animal is the Naman junglefowl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jenha is ranked 94,046th in the world and 3,345th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 165,482 Standard Monetary Units.
