The Glorious Empire of La Jackson is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Ruler Jayson Rivera with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.073 billion Servants 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kingson City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.5%.

The frighteningly efficient La Jacksonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,121 trillion Glorioires 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, 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 amazing 220,996 Glorioires, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

The 3rd Airborne Beekeepers are the most feared regiment in the La Jacksonian military, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, the government is a law unto itself, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Jackson's national animal is the NightOwl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

La Jackson is ranked 188,007th in the world and 17th in Groland for Longest Average Lifespans, with 61.87 years.
