OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Voba with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 17.281 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, socially-minded 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 80%, 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.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, all forms of advertising are banned, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. 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 5th in The Lexicon and 21,217th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 42 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
