The Community of SarahJayne is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sarah Jayne with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, humorless population of 15.785 billion SarahJayneans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Environment, although Education, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SarahJayne City. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong SarahJaynean economy, worth 635 trillion sjs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,279 sjs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in SarahJayne, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SarahJayne's national animal is the kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is SarahJayne-ism.

SarahJayne is ranked 24,574th in the world and 405th in the Rejected Realms for Smartest Citizens, with 52.9 Quips Per Hour.
