The Mostly Free State of Jonathan Schmidt is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.218 billion Jonathan Schmidtians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Jonathan Schmidtian economy, worth 124 trillion Dimmadollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 102,282 Dimmadollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, and vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jonathan Schmidt's national animal is the Jonathan Schmidt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jonathan Schmidt is ranked 17,907th in the world and 563rd in The East Pacific for Best Weather, with 163 Meters Of Sunlight.
