The Awful Sense of Direction of Hertfordshire and Jammbo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Clarkov Furutani Jammbenovych Clarkson with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 3.556 billion Hertfordians 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 Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Middle of Scenic Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Jammbian economy, worth 468 trillion Delta Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,614 Delta Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, and blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hertfordshire and Jammbo's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lost Gensokyo Church of the Countryside.
