|Leader||One And Only|
The Grand State of Japerlasa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by One And Only with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.22 billion Japerlasans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Star City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Japerlasan economy, worth a remarkable 1,283 trillion Fox pictures a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 304,251 Fox pictures, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,026,274 per year while the poor average 66,770, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.
Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, visions of giant pink foxes are a common side effect after Japerlasans eat their meals, most academic research has ground to a halt, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Japerlasa's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
