The Federal Republic of JK239 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Marcey with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.213 billion JKians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perfection. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient JK239ian economy, worth 153 trillion CBS 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,183 CBS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, and foreign policy is based upon the principle of sieve and take. Crime is totally unknown. JK239's national animal is the Barbie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tokenism.

JK239 is ranked 15,014th in the world and 866th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.13 on the Human Development Index.
