OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Jrustela is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Arch-Duke with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.44 billion Jrustelans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Public Transport and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hathinelthor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Hathinelthor, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jrustela's national animal is the Head-Shagging Parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Stacu.

Jrustela is ranked 68th in The East Pacific and 4,864th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 96 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
