The Archived Military State of Republic of Jiesph is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Field Marshal Jon Sherto with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 864 million Jies are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaynpeia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Jiesphan economy, worth 103 trillion Gyaks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 119,538 Gyaks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 732,336 per year while the poor average 8,563, a ratio of 85.5 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Jiesph's national animal is the Griffin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Republic of Jiesph is ranked 5,888th in the world and 12th in Spiritus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,618.35 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
