The Unified Provinces of Jezabelstien is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Irene with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.086 billion Jezabelstienians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hall of Irene. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Jezabelstienian economy, worth a remarkable 4,703 trillion Ivials 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 mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 292,392 Ivials, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", there's a bright dawn ahead for Jezabelstien, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jezabelstien's national animal is the Jezabel Rock Lizard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of Irene.

Jezabelstien is ranked 2,610th in the world and 2nd in Northern Utopia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 5,926.61 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
