Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Revolutionary Republic of Great Jergania and Jonland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President John Ukenye with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.826 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, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 1,686 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 191,079 paper ducats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 898,117 per year while the poor average 24,188, a ratio of 37.1 to 1.

The government is spending billions of paper ducats on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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.

Great Jergania and Jonland is ranked 743rd in the world and 40th in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
