The Commonwealth of Jiam is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, lack of airports, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 818 million Jiamians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Horsia Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 28.1%.

The all-consuming Jiamian economy, worth 89.8 trillion JM$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 109,733 JM$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, the term "Native Jiamian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, and military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jiam's national animal is the White Stallion Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jiam is ranked 36,999th in the world and 1,196th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,390.19 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
