OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Voba with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 17.497 billion Jingdoodics love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arqua. The average income tax rate is 82%, 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.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 2nd in The Lexicon and 13,643rd in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 65 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
