The Reigning Empire of The Dawn of Jorda is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Xipporah with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.431 billion Jordans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sigrun. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dawn of Jordan economy, worth 441 trillion Pounds 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 181,451 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, many friends and relatives of Empress Xipporah have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, the might of the entire Dawn of Jordan Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dawn of Jorda's national animal is the Spiritus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dawnism.

The Dawn of Jorda is ranked 37,265th in the world and 6th in Monarchist and Democratic Alliance for Most Influential, scoring 771 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
