Cotton-eye Jack

The Rogue Nation of Cotton-eye Jack is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, flagrant waste-dumping, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 11.257 billion Cotton-eye Jackians 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.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cotton-eye Jack City. The average income tax rate is 17.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cotton-eye Jackian economy, worth 947 trillion golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,190 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The arms industry has been shut down in a surge of pacifism, people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Cotton-eye Jack, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cotton-eye Jack's national animal is the coyote, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cotton-eye Jack is ranked 186,534th in the world and 4,316th in Artificial Solar System for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.78 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
