The Socialist Republic of Jordkloden is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Samuel Thornwood with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.832 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midten. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Jorden economy, worth a remarkable 1,577 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 178,604 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and Prime Minister Samuel Thornwood's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army. 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 1,257th in the world and 3rd in Confederacy of Allied States for Most Developed, scoring 98.17 on the Human Development Index.
