The Apples and Oranges of Jerzylvania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by -insert desired name here- with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.868 billion Jerzylvanians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the only town without representation. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jerzylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,043 trillion poison apples a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 105,726 poison apples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Jerzylvanian weed picker are way up, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jerzylvania's national animal is the orange man, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is varies per individuals.

Jerzylvania is ranked 41,299th in the world and 1st in Limelight for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,949.49 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
