The Rogue Nation of Jolx is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the unwashed masses with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.961 billion Jolxians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the ocean. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Jolxian economy, worth 772 trillion universes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 195,029 universes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, interest in globalism never flags, and bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects. Crime is almost non-existent. Jolx's national animal is the walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Jolx is ranked 87,177th in the world and 26th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Highest Crime Rates, with 5.92 Crimes Per Hour.
