The Mostly Free State of Jonathan Schmidt is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 957 million Jonathan Schmidtians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Jonathan Schmidtian economy, worth 92.0 trillion Dimmadollars 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 96,085 Dimmadollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jonathan Schmidt's national animal is the Jonathan Schmidt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jonathan Schmidt is ranked 16,825th in the world and 537th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,151.86 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
