The Grand Duchy of Jalamir is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 375 million Jalamirians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The strong Jalamirian economy, worth 28.4 trillion meccs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 75,626 meccs, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is illegal, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", all alcohol is banned, and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Jalamir's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jalamir is ranked 135,235th in the world and 4,391st in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring zero on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
