The Community of Jute is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.682 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, socially-minded, 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 97.6%.
The powerhouse Jutean economy, worth 879 trillion Scores a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,423 Scores, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Euthanasia is illegal, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is totally unknown. Jute's national animal is the honey badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
