The Republic of Jeroque is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Austen Voreux with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.616 billion Jeroqueans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bousille. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Jeroquean economy, worth 161 trillion Assignats a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,609 Assignats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and there's no representation without taxation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jeroque's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jeroque is ranked 23,749th in the world and 10th in United Nations UN for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,859.01 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
