New Joran

Population2.719 billion

LeaderHis Royal Highness King Azim-al-Baqir


The Kingdom of New Joran is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by His Royal Highness King Azim-al-Baqir with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.719 billion New Joranians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durestan. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Joranian economy, worth 403 trillion Durests a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,419 Durests, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, it's never "just a game" with New Joranian sports fans, and the freedom to be free is always just out of reach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Joran's national animal is the Camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

New Joran is ranked 106,843rd in the world and 128th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 49.03 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
