The United Kingdom of Jaslandia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prince Regent Jason with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.287 billion Jaslandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Michaelopolis. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Jaslandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,966 trillion Jasas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 194,074 Jasas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, homophobia is off the menu, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jaslandia's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Jaslandia is ranked 205,307th in the world and 59th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.41 Crimes Per Hour.
