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 renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.24 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 1,979 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 161,711 Arans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, government officials frown on anything more technologically advanced than an abacus, self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their drivers, and the government has returned all business to private ownership. 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 159,895th in the world and 125th in Canada for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 17.15 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
