The Most Serene Republic of Jenalia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Brucia Parrias with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and ban on automobiles. The cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.831 billion Jenalians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palm City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Jenalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,321 trillion Smarties a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 146,613 Smarties, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Bereaved families are assigned a new housemate the day after the funeral, the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Jenalia, and government bureaucrats spend six hours per day justifying a six-hour workday. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jenalia's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Skepticism.

Jenalia is ranked 187,346th in the world and 104th in Equilism for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.72 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
