The Great Judicial Nation of JURISDICTIONS is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Mark Holland with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 13.774 billion Juri 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 Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armstong. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Jurisdiction economy, worth 841 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,075 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Dollar battlesuits, manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals, citizens re-mortgage their homes to buy lottery tickets, and private law firms are unheard of. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JURISDICTIONS's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is not any particular one.
