The Galactical Democratic States of Of Jasper is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Barvarian Illuminati with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.182 billion Jasperians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Jasper City. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jasperian economy, worth 404 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 127,206 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, and frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of Jasper's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Of Jasper is ranked 15,399th in the world and 690th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,806.19 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
