The Commonwealth of Jiria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Azadi with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.785 billion Jirians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruha. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Jirian economy, worth 229 trillion USDS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,708 USDS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 405,522 per year while the poor average 31,234, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

Azadi's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, nobody is forced to join the armed forces, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jiria's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Jiria is ranked 4,205th in the world and 54th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 16,449.25 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
