The Radioactive Republic of Jasque is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Citizen Amaneus Lachance with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 33.441 billion Jasqueans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chernobyl. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Jasquean economy, worth a remarkable 8,462 trillion Becquerels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 253,046 Becquerels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, and sales of trenchcoats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Jasque's national animal is the Green Glowing Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Jasque is ranked 2,192nd in the world and 1st in The New Meritocracy for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 745.26 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
