Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Voba with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 18.751 billion Jingdoodics are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arqua. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jingdoodian economy, worth a remarkable 2,223 trillion Gulls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,604 Gulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, government workers are regularly taken hostage by protesters, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, and eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Jingdood's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jingdood is ranked 28th in The Lexicon and 137,485th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -16 on the Hayek Index.
