Crosseye Jack

Population11.061 billion


The Rogue Nation of Crosseye Jack is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.061 billion Crosseye Jackians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Crosseye Jackian economy, worth 872 trillion golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,903 golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It is impossible to get any work done as auditors swarm every inch of government factories and mines, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, citizens who refuse to vote are guillotined, and it takes a village to catch a criminal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Crosseye Jack's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Crosseye Jack is ranked 20,332nd in the world and 33rd in Equestria for Highest Economic Output, with 872 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
