The State of Joergen is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The President with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.59 billion Joergenians 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 Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joergen. The average income tax rate is 32.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Joergenian economy, worth 172 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,776 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joergen's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Joergen is ranked 133,471st in the world and 212th in The Free Nations Region for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 53.29 on the Hayek Index.
