Jan Mackistan

Population3.332 billion

LeaderJames Parker Jones


The Writing Nation of Jan Mackistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by James Parker Jones with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.332 billion Janns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jannapolis. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jan Mackistanian economy, worth 316 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,841 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, and schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jan Mackistan's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Religion.

Jan Mackistan is ranked 10,793rd in the world and 896th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 29.89 Bank.
