The Jamlandias

The Federative Archipelago of The Jamlandias is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Dodger with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.019 billion Jamlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valenctown. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Jamlandian economy, worth 167 trillion Riles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,769 Riles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Jamlandias's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Jamlandias is ranked 10,093rd in the world and 858th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 6 Valid Endorsements.
