Gone to Jericho

Population4.766 billion



The Lonely Madness of Gone to Jericho is a massive, genial nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 4.766 billion Gone to Jerichoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jericho. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Gone to Jerichoan economy, worth 244 trillion blackmores a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,333 blackmores, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gone to Jericho's national animal is the exile, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gone to Jericho is ranked 19,465th in the world and 15th in Universal Dream Network for Smartest Citizens, with 63.09 quips per hour.
