The Anserine Republic of Jyskmark is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Kasper Henriksen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.275 billion Jyskere 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.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TÝrdahl. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jysk economy, worth 391 trillion Jysk Punds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,517 Jysk Punds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the children of Jyskmark are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jyskmark's national animal is the Jysk Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Marxism-Leninism-Gooseism.

Jyskmark is ranked 236,370th in the world and 190th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -10.2 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
