Northern Jackaia

The Alt Republic of Northern Jackaia is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Nike Schmidt with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 809 million Jackaians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jackaia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Jackaian economy, worth 113 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 140,352 Bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 481,517 per year while the poor average 30,025, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Bars are packed at all hours, there is a law against "filthy foreign food", movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, and the Jackaian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". 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.

Northern Jackaia is ranked 38,010th in the world and 11th in The Confederacy of Aligned Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 63 on the Rand Index.
