The Republic of Jeffoo is a huge, genial nation, notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 335 million Jeffooans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Jeffooan economy, worth 14.9 trillion Jeffs a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,373 Jeffs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jeffoo's national animal is the black bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jeffoo is ranked 168,105th in the world and 7,010th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.27 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
