The Idiotic Cesspool of Juristonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Juri with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.25 billion Juristonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Juritopia. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The thriving Juristonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,636 trillion Dust Bunnies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 243,524 Dust Bunnies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, and immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs. Crime is totally unknown. Juristonia's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Juristonia is ranked 234,119th in the world and 125th in Nederland for Most Primitive, scoring -352.62 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
