The Republic of Jethro-Tull is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 666 million Jethro-Tullians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 60.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Jethro-Tullian economy, worth 41.6 trillion Shillings 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, fairly diversified black market in Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. 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 62,495 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Jethro-Tull City Times is sold out, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime is relatively low. Jethro-Tull's national animal is the Proud Stalion Stead, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jethro-Tull is ranked 45,238th in the world and 1,389th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 138.78 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
