Jackpot Justice

Population1.603 billion


The People's Republic of Jackpot Justice is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.603 billion Jackpot Justiceans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 34.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Jackpot Justicean economy, worth 16.4 trillion starcoins 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. 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 10,207 starcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jackpot Justice's national animal is the pony.

Jackpot Justice is ranked 163,789th in the world and 126th in Iran for Most Average, scoring 22.09 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
