The Jingoistic states of Jonairadsylva is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.548 billion Jonairadsylvans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jonairadsylvan economy, worth 798 trillion Jonairas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,456 Jonairas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jonairadsylva's national animal is the Cockatoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jonairadsylva is ranked 11,887th in the world and 649th in Osiris for Lowest Crime Rates, with 91.29 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
