The United Federation of Joodey is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 17.417 billion Joods enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yxburg. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joodish economy, worth a remarkable 1,397 trillion Jeeds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,219 Jeeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joodey's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Joodey is ranked 45,673rd in the world and 2,993rd in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 162.64 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
