The Idiotic Cesspool of Juristonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Juri with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.929 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 6,535 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 242,706 Dust Bunnies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Juri spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime is totally unknown. Juristonia's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Juristonia is ranked 115,727th in the world and 122nd in Nederland for Largest Black Market, with 329 billion Standard Monetary Units.
