The Republic of Jus is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 690 million Jusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Patricia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The thriving Jusian economy, worth 61.1 trillion notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 88,557 notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 288,531 per year while the poor average 20,462, a ratio of 14.1 to 1.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, one of the most popular models in Jus has a scarred face and one working eye, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and it's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jus's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Jus is ranked 7,526th in the world and 21st in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8,873.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
