The Borderlands of Juvena is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 461 million Juvvies enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 22.8%.

The powerhouse Juvenile economy, worth 35.7 trillion doughs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 77,388 doughs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Juvena's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Juvena is ranked 26,338th in the world and 1st in Battleship for Most Influential, scoring 1,215 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
