The Nationalist State of Jammlandia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiser of Jammlandia with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.1 billion Jamlanders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Jam Factory. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jammlandian economy, worth 358 trillion Jamcoins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,729 Jamcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The Jam Cow is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction, surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and golden statues of Jam Cows line the memorial avenues of the Funerary District. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jammlandia's national animal is the Jam Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Jam.

Jammlandia is ranked 7,225th in the world and 265th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 8,803.43 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
