The United Kingdom of The Two Jerseys is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by HM King Louis with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 15.734 billion Caesareans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Princeton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Caesarean economy, worth a remarkable 2,446 trillion Caesarean Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 155,484 Caesarean Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 461,537 per year while the poor average 41,095, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Princeton Natural History Museum, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Two Jerseys's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Two Jerseys is ranked 5,987th in the world and 179th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,934.51 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
