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 notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.602 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 tiny, 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 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Jarodlian economy, worth a remarkable 2,047 trillion Arans a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 162,440 Arans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of Jarodl's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, and the leaders of Jarodl are given the nod by their predecessors. 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 86,783rd in the world and 95th in Canada for Nudest, with 124.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
