The Free Land of Jestings is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 340 million Jestians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jestonia. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Jestian economy, worth 28.6 trillion dollar bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 84,122 dollar bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and the country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jestings's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jestings is ranked 153,840th in the world and 6,667th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.1 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
