The Commonwealth of Jarilon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zanon Stints with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.728 billion Jarilonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sate. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jarilonian economy, worth 506 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,994 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation, tourists visit Jarilon to mass-moon Jarilonian politicians, and procrastination is a national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarilon's national animal is the Barn Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Thelema.

Jarilon is ranked 128,215th in the world and 5,714th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 14.95 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
