Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The New Iron State of Jarodl is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sanctum of National Harmony with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.436 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 2,018 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 162,349 Arans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government has returned all business to private ownership, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense, and tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of Jarodl's historical leaders at Mount Rushless. 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 9,195th in the world and 45th in Canada for Smartest Citizens, with 79.96 Quips Per Hour.
