The Commonwealth of Jovian Knights is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by God Emperor Justin with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.431 billion Jovians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindas. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Jovian economy, worth 743 trillion Joves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 167,846 Joves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ex-royals are being greeted by a whole new set of gestures, lobster tastes best when it is red, government officials across Jovian Knights are being "encouraged" to adopt Gato de Sols to set an example for the populace, and sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jovian Knights's national animal is the Gato de Sol, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of None.

Jovian Knights is ranked 160,117th in the world and 8,563rd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.24 Obesity Rate.
