The Sultanate of Tanah Jaya is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Menteri Besar Wen Jiang with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.388 billion Tanah Jayans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Setangi. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tanah Jayan economy, worth 432 trillion Ringgits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,752 Ringgits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, getting your license is a rite of passage for young adults, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tanah Jaya's national animal is the Stork, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Tanah Jaya is ranked 243,726th in the world and 11th in Mandalanusa for Most Avoided, scoring 1.56 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
