OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Voba with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 16.899 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 71%, 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 rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen, vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious 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 2nd in The Lexicon and 6,971st in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 18 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
