OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Jrustela is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-Duke with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.071 billion Jrustelans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Public Transport and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hathinelthor. The average income tax rate is 37%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Jrustela's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned. 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 2,501st in The East Pacific and 80,549th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.12 Stalins.
