The Birds with arms of The Jerichowan Country is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bird with buff arms with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.45 billion Bird's with arms enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burg. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bird with arms economy, worth 360 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 quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,242 Jerichowan Guldens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. 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 Bird with arms, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Jerichowan Country is ranked 14,133rd in the world and 659th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 147,242.5 Standard Monetary Units.
