The Commonwealth of Jahass is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Marcus Aurelius II with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.179 billion Jahassians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sethanon. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jahassian economy, worth 128 trillion Dahmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 108,598 Dahmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All smart devices are under the control of the all-seeing AI, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, and machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jahass's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jahass is ranked 140,265th in the world and 5,551st in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -5.1 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
