The Pragmatic Disciples of Jerry Christ is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jerry Christ with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 34.869 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, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 6,688 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 220,860th in the world and 14th in Hyrule for Highest Food Quality, scoring 5.92 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
