The Confederacy of Jhino is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 16.712 billion Jhinoans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Jhinoan economy, worth 384 trillion Juxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 23,010 Juxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, meat-eating is frowned upon, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and the lizzard is a protected species. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jhino's national animal is the lizzard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jhino is ranked 152,206th in the world and 83rd in Middle Earth for Most Secular, with 16.41 Atheism Rate.
