The Federation of Jamestownn is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 575 million Jamestownnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestownn City. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jamestownnian economy, worth 76.0 trillion Jephphs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 132,122 Jephphs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, and foreign lack of enthusiasm for Jamestownnian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamestownn's national animal is the Tree, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Jamestownn is ranked 80,135th in the world and 22nd in The Norwegian Region Legion for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,181.62 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
