The Greater Socialist Empire of Jonaria is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jonathan Campbell with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.971 billion Jonarians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ayrassal City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Jonarian economy, worth 381 trillion Jonarian Crypto-dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 193,638 Jonarian Crypto-dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 612,019 per year while the poor average 46,777, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jonaria's national animal is the Rick Astley, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eternalism.

Jonaria is ranked 250,531st in the world and 331st in Thaecia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 38.25 percentage of bribes refused.
