The Commonwealth of Jyzeria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Helena Baumgartner with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.119 billion Jyzerians 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valencia. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jyzerian economy, worth a remarkable 2,046 trillion Jyzes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,028 Jyzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chancellor Helena Baumgartner has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, the government is under the thumb of countless special interests, diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, and balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jyzeria's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violet.

Jyzeria is ranked 207,966th in the world and 14th in Jyzeria for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -12.25 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
