The Great Nation of Jerredland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jerred Bond with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.811 billion Jerredians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jerred City. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jerredlandian economy, worth 269 trillion US Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 96,016 US Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Jerredland's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jerredland's national animal is the ox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Jerredland is ranked 126,665th in the world and 12th in Selene for Most Influential, scoring 30 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
