The Borderlands of Juvena is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 430 million Juvvies enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 21.5%.

The powerhouse Juvenile economy, worth 34.2 trillion doughs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 79,488 doughs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, the Juvena Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Juvena's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Juvena is ranked 205,381st in the world and 438th in The Internationale for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 18.28 Tourists Per Hour.
