The Kingdom of Jethroia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Evaristus I with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 802 million Jethroians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canaan. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jethroian economy, worth 76.0 trillion Dimes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,727 Dimes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and no one is quite sure what many government officials look like. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jethroia's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jethroia is ranked 143,135th in the world and 2nd in Vastrilandia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
