The Emperor's Hand of Mara Jade-Skywalker is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Luke with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.677 billion Mara Jade-Skywalkerians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Education, and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 88.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mara Jade-Skywalkerian economy, worth 416 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 155,718 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Coruscant" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mara Jade-Skywalker's national animal is the wookie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cards.

Mara Jade-Skywalker is ranked 200,007th in the world and 8,015th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 14.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
