"Strength in Unity"
Leader: Jon de Masi
Currency: Jedin dollar
National Animal: Dolphin
The Regional Assembly Member of Jedinsto is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jon de Masi with a fair hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 886 million Jedin 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frostolm. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Jedin economy, worth 57.1 trillion Jedin dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 64,409 Jedin dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Superfoods are often seen as supervillains, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jedinsto's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
Jedinsto arrived in XKI mid-March and has risen up quickly becoming a TITO member and an emissary less than one month after their arrival. Congratulations to our newest Featured Nation as chosen by the MoE and DMoE Free las pinas and Sulenia!
