The Queendom of Jarlskona is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 373 million Jarlskonans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 7.4%.
The Jarlskonan economy, worth 20.9 trillion vekts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 55,949 vekts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Jarlskona's national animal is the wolf.
