The Watchfires of JJL is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 16.775 billion JJLians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong JJLian economy, worth 838 trillion $$s a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,006 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JJL's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

JJL is ranked 183,127th in the world and 1st in Jewish Justice league for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 42.58 on the Hayek Index.
