The Federation of Jamestownn is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 592 million Jamestownnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestownn City. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jamestownnian economy, worth 79.0 trillion Jephphs 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, 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 an impressive 133,400 Jephphs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, Jamestownnian soldiers know how to create single mothers in more ways than one, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamestownn's national animal is the Tree, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Jamestownn is ranked 161,711th in the world and 38th in The Norwegian Region Legion for Most Inclusive, scoring 40.34 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
