The Federal Republic of JK239 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Marcey with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.226 billion JKians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perfection. The average income tax rate is 81.5%.

The frighteningly efficient JK239ian economy, worth 153 trillion CBS 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,441 CBS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, too many developers spoil the codebase, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories. Crime is totally unknown. JK239's national animal is the Barbie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tokenism.

JK239 is ranked 10,673rd in the world and 401st in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 17.06 Obesity Rate.
