The Peanut Plantation of Jimmy Carter is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mister Malaise von Georgia with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.806 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plains. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.6%.

The powerhouse Jimmy Carterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,408 trillion muds 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 89,112 muds, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Jimmy Carterian Embarrassments, the fattest folk in Jimmy Carter look to be the happiest ones, renewable energy projects have ground to a halt, and police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions. 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 63,733rd in the world and 3rd in United Alliances for Most Developed, scoring 61.03 on the Human Development Index.
