The Republic of Jeriga is a massive, pleasant nation, ruled by King Elroy with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.207 billion Jerigans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montien. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Jerigan economy, worth 122 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,349 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Newlywed misogynists complain about their wives keeping their maiden names, rural Jerigans stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred, and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jeriga's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Jeriga is ranked 77,523rd in the world and 147th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,144.19 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
