The Republic of Jotesburg is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 224 million Jotesburgians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 37.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jotesburgian economy, worth 22.2 trillion Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 99,203 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, a government program is underway to revitalize Jotesburg's beaches, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jotesburg's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jotesburg is ranked 53,622nd in the world and 818th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.7 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
