The Great Legislative Nation of JURISDICTIONS is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Jenalee Porter with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 26.559 billion Juri are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The District of Alderan. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Jurisdiction economy, worth a remarkable 1,780 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,029 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JURISDICTIONS's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is not any particular one.

JURISDICTIONS is ranked 8,785th in the world and 18th in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Best Weather, with 232 Meters Of Sunlight.
