St Scurry and Jelly

Population986 million


AnimalPolar Bear

The Empire of St Scurry and Jelly is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 986 million St Scurry and Jellyians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jellyville. The average income tax rate is 76.3%.

The frighteningly efficient St Scurry and Jellyian economy, worth 82.9 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 84,063 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and in a baffling press conference Leader proudly dismantled a broken door. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St Scurry and Jelly's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

St Scurry and Jelly is ranked 75,758th in the world and 2,576th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 80 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
