The United Democratic Republic of JanRaiQlux is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High DemoJux Simon Idiot with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.037 billion Janaiquxes are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acumentor. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming a Janraiqluxor economy, worth 325 trillion Jozairs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,147 Jozairs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", pledging just four hours of spare time to police work earns a named credit on the government's official website, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and everyone hates people who encourage hate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JanRaiQlux's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

JanRaiQlux is ranked 7,306th in the world and 143rd in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 17.04 bananas ingested per day.
