The Pure Democracy of Jarridia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marianna Stratford with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 33.835 billion Jarridians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shelbin. The average income tax rate is 6.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Jarridian economy, worth a remarkable 6,602 trillion Maus a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,127 Maus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase, lending money has become a major liability, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Jarridia. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarridia's national animal is the Flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
