Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of SarahJayne is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sarah Jayne with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, humorless population of 14.718 billion SarahJayneans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Environment, with Defense, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SarahJayne City. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The SarahJaynean economy, worth 544 trillion sjs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,999 sjs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback kitten is only seen in captivity programs, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SarahJayne's national animal is the kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is SarahJayne-ism.

SarahJayne is ranked 52,837th in the world and 1,068th in the Rejected Realms for Most Devout, with 24.3 Prayers Per Hour.
