The Dominion of Jones Country is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Tristan with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.047 billion Jones Countryians 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sparta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.5%.

The all-consuming Jones Countryian economy, worth 142 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 136,145 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jones Country's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Jones Country is ranked 33,440th in the world and 1,608th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 138.7 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
