The United Socialist States of Jersatia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leon Trotsky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, smutty television, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.604 billion Jersatians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jersatia City. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Jersatian economy, worth 115 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 72,087 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jersatia's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Jersatia is ranked 219,467th in the world and 211th in New Western Empire for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -13.61 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
