The Jingoistic States of J A R V I S is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its restrictive gun laws, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.729 billion J A R V I Sians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.7%.

The sizeable but inefficient J A R V I Sian economy, worth 76.4 trillion Arc Reactors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 44,165 Arc Reactors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, and people who have lived their entire lives in J A R V I S are shocked to discover that they are not citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. J A R V I S's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

J A R V I S is ranked 57,798th in the world and 2nd in Iron Family for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 51.67 Effective Tax Rate.
