Ide Jima

Population16.258 billion



The Empire of Ide Jima is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its national health service, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.258 billion Ide Jimans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ide Jiman economy, worth a remarkable 1,608 trillion Won a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 98,907 Won, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 306,337 per year while the poor average 24,603, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas, the right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience, and atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ide Jima's national animal is the Eagle and its national religion is Moo.

Ide Jima is ranked 18,792nd in the world and 22nd in Eurth for Most Developed, scoring 76.55 on the Human Development Index.
