The Star Fox of Jar Wattinree is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by First Primarch Qui Iudicant with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.144 billion Jar Wattinrae are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Requiem. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Jar Wattinrae economy, worth a remarkable 6,435 trillion E-Wattinrae denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 703,812 E-Wattinrae denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jar Wattinree's national animal is the Wattinrae kitsune, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Hristorin.

Jar Wattinree is ranked 1,208th in the world and 26th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 23,109.33 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
