The Empire of The Jerichowan Country is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Hypnotoad with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.816 billion Jerichowans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hypnotoad City. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jerichowan economy, worth 580 trillion Jerichowan Guldens 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,013 Jerichowan Guldens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Hypnotoad City Times is sold out, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, and printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Jerichowan Country's national animal is the Hypnotoad, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The cult of the Hypnotoad.

The Jerichowan Country is ranked 173,808th in the world and 4,195th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 63.8 billion Standard Monetary Units.
