The Federal Republic of Jirena is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Heath Barron with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.69 billion Jirenans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jeuno. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jirenan economy, worth 531 trillion Jirenan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 143,933 Jirenan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, third world countries are rich in "I Love Jeuno" t-shirts, and a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water. Crime is totally unknown. Jirena's national animal is the Alleiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jirena is ranked 5,474th in the world and 256th in Balder for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 8,347.07 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
