LeaderGrand-Emperor Dominic Richardson Stuart


The Empire of Jefferson Club is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand-Emperor Dominic Richardson Stuart with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.194 billion Jefferson Clubians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gondor. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jefferson Clubian economy, worth 223 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,722 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', and Jefferson Club is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jefferson Club's national animal is the Jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violence.

Jefferson Club is ranked 32,640th in the world and 106th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,668.4 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
