The Follower of Ahmad of Jolthig is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Khalifa with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 17.758 billion Jolthigians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jolthig. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Jolthigian economy, worth a remarkable 2,607 trillion Jols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,849 Jols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a hole in the heart of every Jolthigian city, jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, and all children's clothes come in only cream and off-white to prevent offense. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jolthig's national animal is the White Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam Ahmadiyya.

Jolthig is ranked 8,605th in the world and 7th in United Empire of Islam for Most Cultured, scoring 116 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
