The Perennial Prospect of Jerry Mander is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Elbridge Gerry with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 4.036 billion Jerries are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elkanah Tisdale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.0%.

The strong Jerry Manderan economy, worth 256 trillion Truths a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 63,659 Truths, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Elbridge Gerry's new office is 6 by 8 feet with steel walls and a barred door, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy, and hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jerry Mander's national animal is the Poll Mole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Election Results.

Jerry Mander is ranked 12,371st in the world and 2nd in Westfalen Westphalia for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 11.46 Bank.
