The Eastern Hegemony of Jade Confederacy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Polemarch Han Tzu II with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.906 billion Jade Confederacyians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viridia. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Jade Confederacyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,133 trillion Confederate Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 242,817 Confederate Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.
Government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, the Jade Confederacy Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, and police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Jade Confederacy's national animal is the Emerald Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Neo Taosim.
