The Theocratic Grand Duchy of New Jewlan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke N J O'Carroll with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.18 billion New Jewlanders are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SedeVacanteNon. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient New Jewlanian economy, worth 92.6 trillion New Jewlan Shekels a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,459 New Jewlan Shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, and children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Jewlan's national animal is the Cherub, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

New Jewlan is ranked 125,130th in the world and 12th in United Christian Empires of the West for Fattest Citizens, with 9.69 Obesity Rate.
