The Antique Shopping Mall of Jahka is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Papa John with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 20.46 billion Jahx enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Spirituality. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Jahx economy, worth a remarkable 3,881 trillion Bucks 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 Soda Sales, Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 189,704 Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Papa John claims no responsibility for what Papa John's government does, there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Jahka's national animal is the Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Jahka is ranked 1,533rd in the world and 9th in Europeia for Most Armed, with 17.16 Weapons Per Person.
