The Turtle Sanctuary of Jestar Falls is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Master Turtle Keraeth Rhoora with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.059 billion Jestar Fallsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turtle Town. The average income tax rate is 83.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Jestar Fallsian economy, worth 401 trillion Rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 195,224 Rupees, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, bike rage is all the rage, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jestar Falls's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cult Of The Turtle.

Jestar Falls is ranked 8,851st in the world and 1st in Blackstar for Most Developed, scoring 91 on the Human Development Index.
