The Republic of Jalqolak is a sovereign state located in southern Punth. Jalqolak has a land area of 794,582 km2 and is bordered by Corumm to the east, Kulaparkar to the north, Dhavastu to the west and the Pukhtun Sea to the south. The population of Jalqolak is split almost evenly between urban and rural areas, with the capital city of Tabish being the undisputed center of economic activity.
Jalqolak has seen human habitation for thousands of years and has been a battleground for several local powers including the Oduniyyad caliphate and various Corummese dynasties. Its population is composed of a Jalqolaki majority and various minorities such as the Tauqi and Kassar people and Corummese muslims known as Yue.
The climate of Jalqolak varies from tropical to temperate, with semi-arid conditions in the coastal south. There is a monsoon season with frequent flooding due to heavy rainfall, and a dry season with significantly less rainfall. There are four distinct seasons in Jalqolak: a cool, dry winter from December through February; a hot, dry spring from March through May; the summer rainy season, or southwest monsoon period, from June through September; and the retreating monsoon period of October and November. Rainfall can vary greatly from year to year, and patterns of alternate flooding and drought are not uncommon.

Jalqolak follows the traditional republican system with three separate branches; an executive led by a Chief of State, an unicameral legislative and the judiciary represented by the Supreme Islamic Court. The Chief of State is elected through nationwide elections, every five years and has wide powers over military, economic affairs and foreign policy. Legislative power rests with the Jalqolaki National Assembly or Jalqolaki Majles, with each of the country's 150 districts having two seats, renewed by election every three years.
Current Jalqolak politics are divided between two electoral alliances, the conservative Alliance for Prosperity and the relatively moderate Builder's Alliance
