The People's Republic of Jewitt is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 102 million Jewittians 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 enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Jewittian economy, worth 3.46 trillion Pound Jewitts 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 Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 33,920 Pound Jewitts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, many believe that Leader's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jewitt's national animal is the Jewittian Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jewitt is ranked 108,902nd in the world and 3,198th in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 25.85951122768 Days.
