The Uncompromising Decisions of Jontopiary is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by GodEmperor Jon with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, triple-decker prams, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.793 billion Jontopiaryians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jontopiary Prime. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Jontopiaryian economy, worth a remarkable 2,175 trillion Jontoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,099 Jontoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, and the Jontopiary Prime Film Festival recently voted 'Jontopiaryian Getting Hit By Football' as best film. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jontopiary's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Jontopiary is ranked 516th in the world and 33rd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,413.73 Tourists Per Hour.
