The Grand Republic of Jerkania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.591 billion Jerks are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Jerkanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,194 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 181,210 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.
Farmers are struggling to keep up with demand for local produce, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and Chancellor has just been declared ruler of Jerkania in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jerkania's national animal is the muffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
