The United Municipalitys of The Jerichowan Country is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lūga the Cruel with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.269 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burg. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jerichowan economy, worth 450 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 137,932 Jerichowan Guldens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. 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 Eurasian Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Jerichowan Country is ranked 203,727th in the world and 9,305th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.56 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
