The Oppressed Peoples of Jonkusa is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 471 million Jonkusans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Jonkusan economy, worth 18.0 trillion Jonks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 38,180 Jonks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, and male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jonkusa's national animal is the Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Jonkusa is ranked 65,032nd in the world and 1st in The International Franch Dressing Bloc for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,404.51 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
