Jones Country

Population1.934 billion

CapitalNew Sparta
FaithThe Imperial Cult


The Dominion of Jones Country is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.934 billion Jones Countryians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sparta. The average income tax rate is 55.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Jones Countryian economy, worth 293 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 151,663 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around New Sparta, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, people say chess victor Emperor can kill you with mind-bullets, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jones Country's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Jones Country is ranked 168,883rd in the world and 8,875th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 8.45 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
