The Temple of Jermeny is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Kong with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.577 billion Jermenyians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The powerhouse Jermenyian economy, worth 515 trillion Bananas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 92,395 Bananas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 528,311 per year while the poor average 7,814, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, and traumatized ex-ambassadors seek treatment for their "desk dissociation". Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Jermeny's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bananaism.

Jermeny is ranked 103,659th in the world and 431st in Europeia for Highest Drug Use, scoring 66 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
