“Long Live The Peaceful Revolution!”

Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The Post-Revolutionary Republic of Great Jenstonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Grand Pubah with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 9.072 billion Jenstonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
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 Bongston. The average income tax rate is 71%, 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.
The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime is well under control. Great Jenstonia's national animal is the Jenstonian Reindeer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Ascensionism, and its currency is the GJ Dollar.
