The Commonwealth of Jarilon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Zanon Stints with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.155 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sate. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jarilonian economy, worth 250 trillion marks 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 116,018 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, the nation thirsts for new freedoms, the nation's children are known for being even more apathetic and cynical than their parents, and more and more people are signing up for the government party. 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 110,600th in the world and 4,424th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 47.18 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
