The Idiotic Cesspool of Juristonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Juri with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.559 billion Juristonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Juritopia. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The thriving Juristonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,165 trillion Dust Bunnies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 241,207 Dust Bunnies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, and pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents. Crime is totally unknown. Juristonia's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Juristonia is ranked 158,427th in the world and 81st in Nederland for Most Pro-Market, scoring 20.44 on the Rand Index.
