The Flamingo Monarchy of Jodilee is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Julian the 1st with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 836 million Jodileeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washiluli. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jodileean economy, worth 115 trillion Joleeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 138,085 Joleeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jodilee's national animal is the Flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jodilee is ranked 14,013th in the world and 5th in First World Order for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,523.46 Tourists Per Hour.
