OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Great Judicial Nation of JURISDICTIONS is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Elect Mark Holland with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 12.853 billion Juri are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armstong. The average income tax rate is 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Every street in the nation contains at least three law firms, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. 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, its national religion is not any particular one, and its currency is the Dollar.

JURISDICTIONS is ranked 131st in The East Pacific and 7,531st in the world for Best Weather, with 136 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
