The Republic of Jan-Spam5 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-working population of 232 million Jan-Spam5ians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 17.5%.

The Jan-Spam5ian economy, worth 10.8 trillion rubles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,516 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, Leader's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jan-Spam5's national animal is the wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Jan-Spam5 is ranked 120,350th in the world and 19th in TSP Ejection Contest for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 52.89 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
