New Jorsonn

Population127 million

The Dominion of New Jorsonn is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 127 million New Jorsonnians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The powerhouse New Jorsonnian economy, worth 11.2 trillion Jorsonns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 88,374 Jorsonns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 255,203 per year while the poor average 24,279, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the New Jorsonn Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. New Jorsonn's national animal is the Orca, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

New Jorsonn is ranked 120,381st in the world and 840th in 10000 Islands for Most Pacifist, with 37.73 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
