South Jeolerina

The Borderlands of South Jeolerina is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, cynical population of 276 million South Jeolerinans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The thriving South Jeolerinan economy, worth 18.6 trillion Pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 67,419 Pesos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 238,642 per year while the poor average 13,752, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, Harry Potter books are banned, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. South Jeolerina's national animal is the Seagull, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

South Jeolerina is ranked 167,380th in the world and 62nd in Rushmore for Rudest Citizens, with 32.69 Insults Per Minute.
