The Garden of Earthly Delights of Jabberwocky is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sherlock Quixote with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.164 billion Jabberwockyians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frivolia. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jabberwockyian economy, worth 963 trillion Brilligs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,498 Brilligs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jabberwocky's national animal is the Slithy Tove, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mimsy.

Jabberwocky is ranked 133,398th in the world and 597th in 10000 Islands for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 32,952.19 Standard Monetary Units.
