Great Jenovah

Population652 million


AnimalSteppe Eagle

The Jingoistic States of Great Jenovah is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, public floggings, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 652 million Great Jenovahians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strallé. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.2%.

The all-consuming Great Jenovahian economy, worth 46.9 trillion JenoCredits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 71,987 JenoCredits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 277,845 per year while the poor average 12,813, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Retail stores have reported mile-long lines after the ban on video games was lifted, women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, the nation excels at displacement, and public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women. Crime is a major problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Great Jenovah's national animal is the Steppe Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Great Jenovah is ranked 178,060th in the world and 8,997th in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -9.49 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
