The Free Land of Jestings is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Blue baby bird with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.019 billion Jestians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large 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 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jestian economy, worth 96.9 trillion dollar bucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,056 dollar bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, Blue baby bird has just been declared ruler of Jestings in an international press conference, and saying "don't do anything that Blue baby bird wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. 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 11,516th in the world and 623rd in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,472.79 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
