The Terra Lībera of South Jarvis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Legislative Assembly with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.011 billion South Jarvisians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darwin. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The large but sluggish South Jarvisian economy, worth 810 trillion labour credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 53,993 labour credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is legal, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Darwin for fear of causing a fuss, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Jarvis's national animal is the Conservative MP, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Jarvis is ranked 4,473rd in the world and 24th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Governments, scoring 41.67 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
