The Socialist Republic of Jordkloden is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Samuel Thornwood with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.534 billion Jords enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midten. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Jorden economy, worth a remarkable 1,515 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 177,543 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jordkloden's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jordkloden is ranked 1,286th in the world and 3rd in Confederacy of Allied States for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 22,654.97 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
