The Idiotic Cesspool of Juristonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Juri with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.821 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 6,716 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 241,433 Dust Bunnies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. Crime is totally unknown. Juristonia's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Juristonia is ranked 51,979th in the world and 109th in Nederland for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.45 Bank.
