OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Autonomous Republics of Great Jenstonia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President-General Margarine Petoriapolis with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 8.553 billion Great Jenstonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Commerce, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Goldsten. The average income tax rate is 67%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Jenstonia's national animal is the Jenstonian Reindeer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Bahá'í Faith, and its currency is the JensYuan.

Great Jenstonia is ranked 129th in The East Pacific and 6,245th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 47 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
