The People's Republic of Jarvsand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Anna Kozlov with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 2.912 billion Jarvsandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Arvsfort. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jarvsandian economy, worth 386 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 132,695 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 3,989th in the world and 478th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 32 Valid Endorsements.
