The Community of Jute is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.154 billion Juteans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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 98.0%.

The all-consuming Jutean economy, worth a remarkable 1,324 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 significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 118,756 Scores, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. 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 358th in the world and 2nd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 21,328.2 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
