Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Antarctica Founders of Joop is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joop Polarbear with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 25.563 billion Joopians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icetown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Joopian economy, worth a remarkable 3,667 trillion Polar Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 143,457 Polar Crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,103,140 per year while the poor average 4,996, a ratio of 220 to 1.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, students abandon classrooms for online education, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Joop's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Joop is ranked 64th in Antarctica and 119,048th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -409 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
