The Shapes of Jeux II is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Bartender with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.59 billion Jeux IIians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big O Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Jeux IIian economy, worth a remarkable 1,870 trillion Francoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 195,013 Francoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 550,480 per year while the poor average 55,302, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.
Retired racing Stuff With Legss are served truffles for breakfast, skateparks can be found in every city, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Jeux II Blood Tithe, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime is totally unknown. Jeux II's national animal is the Stuff With Legs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
