The Dominion of Jefatin is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 117 million Jefatinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 55.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Jefatinian economy, worth 5.72 trillion baht 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, 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 48,863 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jefatin's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Jefatin is ranked 88,498th in the world and 4,516th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 595.09 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
