Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Jacob Neihz is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 724 million Jacob Neihzians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Jacob Neihzian economy, worth 12.0 trillion dollars 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 Information Technology, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. 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 16,594 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and major internet servers have acquired citizenship. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Jacob Neihz's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jacob Neihz is ranked 65,423rd in the world and 2nd in Socialist Union for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,288.41 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
