The Federation of Jamestownn is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 597 million Jamestownnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestownn City. The average income tax rate is 58.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Jamestownnian economy, worth 80.2 trillion Jephphs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 134,285 Jephphs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, protestors are soaking piles of Jephphs in blood to make a point about government incomes, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, and the road to capitalism has proved an epic drama of adventure and exploration. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamestownn's national animal is the Tree, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Jamestownn is ranked 14,275th in the world and 3rd in The Norwegian Region Legion for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.99 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
