Northern Jackaia

Population3.622 billion

LeaderJack Schmidt


The The Western Europe Republic of Northern Jackaia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jack Schmidt with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.622 billion Jackaians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Jackaian economy, worth 675 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 186,406 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,101,644 per year while the poor average 14,591, a ratio of 75.5 to 1.

The nation is in perpetual campaign mode, bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, the government has the power to seize property at will, and doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Jackaia's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Nationalism.

Northern Jackaia is ranked 41,925th in the world and 54th in Enadia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 63.78 on the Rand Index.
