The Confederation of Jrustela is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-Duke with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.011 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.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Education, with Public Transport and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hathinelthor. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Jrustelan economy, worth a remarkable 2,849 trillion Stacus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 237,249 Stacus, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 801,616 per year while the poor average 51,935, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.
Loans are available for students from poor families, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime is totally unknown. Jrustela's national animal is the Head-Shagging Parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
