The Bromo Clock Tower of Jerzylvania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by -insert desired name here- with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 10.127 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 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jerzylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,072 trillion hands 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 105,908 hands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, third world countries are rich in "I Love The Only Town Without Representation" t-shirts, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. 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 clock face, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is varies per individuals.

Jerzylvania is ranked 130,271st in the world and 1st in Limelight for Most Beautiful Environments, with 517.35 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
