The Regional Council of OJN is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Zhang Xin Yu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.418 billion jafaziatics enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Universal City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.4%.

The strong jafaziatic economy, worth 79.3 trillion Boorneos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 55,925 Boorneos, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, short is not always sweet, and a PhD just ain't what it used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. OJN's national animal is the Tiger of Jarmasan, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

OJN is ranked 99,501st in the world and 3,319th in Jafazia for Most Avoided, scoring 2.52 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
