Crosseye Jack

Population10.417 billion


The Rogue Nation of Crosseye Jack is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 10.417 billion Crosseye Jackians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Crosseye Jackian economy, worth 871 trillion golds 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 a large, well-organized black market in Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. 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 83,666 golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

It's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, ad-blocking has been nationalised, and sales of superhero insurance have skyrocketed after the government abandoned the police in favor of vigilantes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Crosseye Jack's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Crosseye Jack is ranked 27,118th in the world and 2nd in The Triad for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 969.14 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
