The Militant Dictatorship of Joergenland is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Tiny Tim with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, deadly medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 924 million joergenians 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grenadia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Joergenlandian economy, worth 140 trillion joergens 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 151,961 joergens, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 734,908 per year while the poor average 18,228, a ratio of 40.3 to 1.

Kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television, meals are now followed by thirty minutes of mandatory exercise, chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, and only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joergenland's national animal is the beach chicken, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Joergenland is ranked 31,721st in the world and 1st in International Sea of Memes for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 35.74 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
