The Republic of Jingdood is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Voba with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 24.553 billion Jingdoodics enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arqua. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jingdoodian economy, worth a remarkable 2,643 trillion Gulls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,657 Gulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and lawyers are ordering red ink and 'Cease and Desist' rubber stamps in preparation for the return of copyright law. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Jingdood's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jingdood is ranked 53,500th in the world and 6th in The Lexicon for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.24 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
