The Uncompromising Decisions of Jontopiary is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by GodEmperor Jon with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.854 billion Jontopiaryians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jontopiary Prime. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Jontopiaryian economy, worth a remarkable 2,189 trillion Jontoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,169 Jontoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

City workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, GodEmperor Jon's new android secretary is the latest media darling, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jontopiary's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Jontopiary is ranked 73,551st in the world and 3,597th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 317.62 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
