The Empire of Jatma is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 553 million Jatmen 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lestrange. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jatman economy, worth 51.2 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,618 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jatma's national animal is the tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jatma is ranked 228,444th in the world and 178th in New Western Empire for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -10 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
