JesseltonTM

Population280 million

The Kingdom of JesseltonTM is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 280 million Jesseltonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.4%.

The thriving JesseltonTMian economy, worth 23.7 trillion Selts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,584 Selts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 302,064 per year while the poor average 17,019, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

The government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, basket-weaving is the nation's latest fad, the police insist that racism does not exist, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JesseltonTM's national animal is the Lion.

JesseltonTM is ranked 112,570th in the world and 5,530th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 1.73 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
