The Tyu of Jaksmouth is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.804 billion Jaksmouthians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flotimina. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jaksmouthian economy, worth a remarkable 5,180 trillion Clarences a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 275,501 Clarences, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, conspiracy theorists allege Flotimina's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, and selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork. Crime is totally unknown. Jaksmouth's national animal is the Gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jaksmouth is ranked 160th in the world and 4th in the Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 99.55 on the Human Development Index.
