LeaderThe Imperial Consul


The Free Imperial Republic of Janusus is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Imperial Consul with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.909 billion Janususians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Janususian economy, worth a remarkable 1,584 trillion Ironmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 200,288 Ironmarks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 901,297 per year while the poor average 27,457, a ratio of 32.8 to 1.

Throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, and parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Janusus's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Janusus is ranked 46,535th in the world and 13th in Crassia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
