The NationStates Zombie Holy Red of New Jacobland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the Supreme Democratic Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.522 billion New Jacoblandians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avio. The average income tax rate is 25.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Jacoblandian economy, worth 241 trillion JacoBucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 158,750 JacoBucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, former televangelists are often seen begging skateboarders for donations, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Jacobland's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Jacobland is ranked 209,011th in the world and 178th in The Western Isles for Lowest Crime Rates, with 52.59 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
