Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Jacobs Cattlebean is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 9.317 billion Jacobs Cattlebeanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Welfare is also considered important, while Industry and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jacobs Cattlebean City. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Jacobs Cattlebeanian economy, worth 104 trillion Tiny Ferrets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 11,237 Tiny Ferrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, research into artificial intelligence has been banned, and the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Jacobs Cattlebean's national animal is the Turkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Jacobs Cattlebean is ranked 176,550th in the world and 1st in Jacobs Cattlebean for Longest Average Lifespans, with 29.1 Years.
