The United States of Jaila is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 868 million Jailans 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 Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Campanel. The average income tax rate is 38.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jailan economy, worth 80.2 trillion jais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,421 jais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jaila's national animal is the wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jaila is ranked 31,112th in the world and 919th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 66.02 on the Human Development Index.
