The Pragmatic Disciples of Jerry Christ is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jerry Christ with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 31.542 billion Jerriatric Christians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jerry Christmas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Jerriatric Christian economy, worth a remarkable 6,050 trillion Beers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 191,818 Beers, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the military has had its funding stripped back as the nation seeks a smaller role in international politics, airport security is provided by private companies, and mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jerry Christ's national animal is the Beer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jerry Christ is ranked 90,178th in the world and 6th in Hyrule for Most Armed, with 0.31 Weapons Per Person.
