Jebediah Kerbal

Population133 million

CurrencyKermin
AnimalRocket Weasel

The Democratic Republic of Jebediah Kerbal is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-working, democratic population of 133 million Kerbals 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 9.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Kerbalian economy, worth 10.5 trillion Kermins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 78,997 Kermins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, and crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead. Crime is almost non-existent. Jebediah Kerbal's national animal is the Rocket Weasel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Jebediah Kerbal is ranked 21,255th in the world and 806th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 110.41 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
