Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Jodastan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Va Te Jodas with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.347 billion Jodastanians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jodate. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The strong Jodastanian economy, worth 112 trillion jodas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Average income is 83,435 jodas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 243,040 per year while the poor average 22,646, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

The well-off amuse themselves by organizing upstairs-downstairs stories within their second homes, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, Va Te Jodas's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and contestants on Jodastan's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Jodastan's national animal is the Platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jodastan is ranked 76,494th in the world and 2,609th in Balder for Best Weather, with 104 Meters Of Sunlight.
