OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Voba with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 17.457 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 Healthcare. 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.

Kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", Ravens have more rights than the average citizen, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 4th in The Lexicon and 21,318th in the world for Best Weather, with 36 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
