The Commonwealth of Jahass is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Marcus Aurelius II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.748 billion Jahassians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sethanon. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jahassian economy, worth 307 trillion Dahmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 111,755 Dahmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, a soldier's body is a temple, the nation leads Balder in per capita stalking, and a video of Marcus Aurelius II wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jahass's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jahass is ranked 185,319th in the world and 6,666th in Balder for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
