|Faith||The Imperial Cult|
The Dominion of Jones Country is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.627 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 50.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Jones Countryian economy, worth 236 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. 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 145,623 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Emperor to meetings with foreign heads of state, and three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up. 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.
