The Republic of Jazklartan is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.131 billion Jazklartanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jazklartanian economy, worth 492 trillion florins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,977 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease. Crime is totally unknown. Jazklartan's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jazklartan is ranked 8,028th in the world and 220th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 120 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
