The Galactical Democratic States of Of Jasper is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Barvarian Illuminati with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.602 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Jasper City. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jasperian economy, worth 206 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,943 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, and the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep. 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 22,370th in the world and 1,064th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 81 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
