The Kaiserreich of Jarvikan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 601 million Jarvikanians 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalmarsa. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jarvikanian economy, worth 56.4 trillion Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 93,887 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, the Eagle is a protected species, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarvikan's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jarvikan is ranked 76,449th in the world and 38th in The United Empires of Carson for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,409.33 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
