The Kingdom of JesseltonTM is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 446 million Jesseltonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.5%.
The thriving JesseltonTMian economy, worth 37.4 trillion Selts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,822 Selts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 299,343 per year while the poor average 16,866, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.
The government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, basket-weaving is the nation's latest fad, the police insist that racism does not exist, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JesseltonTM's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
