The Community of Jute is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.935 billion Juteans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Jutean economy, worth a remarkable 1,050 trillion Scores a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 117,617 Scores, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime is totally unknown. Jute's national animal is the honey badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jute is ranked 179,711th in the world and 110th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -90.43 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
