The United Republics of Great Jergania and Jonland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Ukenye with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.621 billion Jerganians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LibertÓ. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Jerganian economy, worth a remarkable 1,219 trillion paper ducats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 184,183 paper ducats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 892,890 per year while the poor average 21,992, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.
Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Great Jergania and Jonland's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is no longer used at the state level.
