The People's Republic of Jarvsand is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Anna Kozlov with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 5.223 billion Jarvsandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Arvsfort. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jarvsandian economy, worth 658 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 125,993 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarvsand's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Jarvsand is ranked 198,908th in the world and 7,880th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -416.13 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
