“Ashes upon ashes”
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Matriarchy of Jagada is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Matriarch with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.654 billion Jagites live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Welfare and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svedal. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Jagite economy, worth a remarkable 3,398 trillion Icons 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 Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 182,206 Icons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 712,843 per year while the poor average 31,727, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.
Euthanasia is legal, eminent domain has been abolished, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Jagada's national animal is the red dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.
