The United States of Jerno is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Giorgio Annolo I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.829 billion Jernoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seattle. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jernoan economy, worth 524 trillion Jernoan dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,961 Jernoan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, the giant 80-storey carving of Giorgio Annolo I in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jerno's national animal is the Elk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Jerno is ranked 16,759th in the world and 11th in New Democratic Union for Highest Average Incomes, with 136,961.54 Standard Monetary Units.
