Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The New Iron State of Jarodl is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sanctum of National Harmony with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.077 billion Iron citizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silversun. The average income tax rate is 6.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jarodlian economy, worth a remarkable 1,937 trillion Arans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 160,462 Arans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and government officials frown on anything more technologically advanced than an abacus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarodl's national animal is the panda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tuba the Iron.

Jarodl is ranked 184,359th in the world and 118th in Canada for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.92 Missed References Per Hour.
