The Principality of Jatchia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 295 million Jatchians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ancastra. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Jatch economy, worth 7.11 trillion Grankilons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 24,102 Grankilons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, the nation sends criminals home to think about what they did, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jatchia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jatchia is ranked 76,789th in the world and 83rd in Hartfelden for Most Corrupt Governments, with 5.22 Kickbacks Per Hour.
