The Kingdom of SJT is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Alexander IV with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.761 billion Sjtians 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, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashkabia. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient SJTian economy, worth a remarkable 1,568 trillion skifes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,331 skifes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on SJTian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of SJT's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SJT's national animal is the European black bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SJT is ranked 8,043rd in the world and 1st in Eos for Highest Economic Output, with 1,568 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
