The Peanut Plantation of Jimmy Carter is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mister Malaise von Georgia with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 13.757 billion Carterpillars 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plains. The average income tax rate is 70.1%.

The powerhouse Jimmy Carterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,014 trillion muds a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 73,759 muds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Government spending has hit an all-time low, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks, and libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jimmy Carter's national animal is the Freaky Georgian Gator, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Good Ole Southern Religion.

Jimmy Carter is ranked 147,810th in the world and 4th in United Alliances for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring zero on the Hickory Productivity Index.
