The Fiefdom of Ona Jest is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 759 million Ona Jestians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Ona Jestian economy, worth 9.60 trillion złoties a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 12,647 złoties, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ona Jest's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
