OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Voba with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 17.67 billion Jingdoodics are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arqua. The average income tax rate is 81%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens who refuse to vote are guillotined, the Jingdood Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, and police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Jingdood's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Gull.

Jingdood is ranked 26th in The Lexicon and 118,279th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -27 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
