Jetstone is a royal side in Erfworld. It is one of Erfworld's oldest sides, having lasted approximately two-thirds of Erfworld's existence and a minimum of 80,000 turns. It was, until recently, ruled by King Slately, until he was killed by Parson of Gobwin Knob.
During the Battle for Gobwin Knob, its troops were led by Prince Ansom, then Chief Warlord and heir to the throne: Prince Ansom was killed during parley by the Twoll Bogroll. He was the first unit to be decrypted by Chief Croakamancer Wanda of Gobwin Knob.

Real World References
The name "Jetstone" seems to be a portmanteau of the names of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons The Jetsons and The Flintstones. King Slately's name is an amalgamation of the names of the bosses on the two shows, Mr. Spacely (Jetsons) and Mr. Slate (Flintstones). The capital, Spacerock, is named according to the themes on the two shows, and may be an amalgamation of the workplaces of the two main characters -- Fred Flintstone's the Slate Rock and Gravel Company with George Jetson's Spacely Space Sprockets. (Fred lived in Bedrock, but George lived in Orbit City.)
It's worth noting that Jet is a type of gemstone. It's where the term "jet black" originates from. It's traditionally been used in mourning jewelry for funerals, and considering how many princes and people Jetstone has lost in the story so far, it's an apt name.
In Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures, the titular hero was once sucked into mashups of other cartoons, including "The Jetstones". He was subjected to an endless, maddening theme song that introduced every member of the cast.
The radishes that are the symbol of Jetstone are reminiscent of those from Super Mario Brothers 2.
