Great Jahar

Population1.275 billion

LeaderJe Kranhev


The Moral Republic of Great Jahar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Je Kranhev with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.275 billion Jaharians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rotellia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Jaharian economy, worth 199 trillion Jahas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 156,815 Jahas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 505,996 per year while the poor average 36,755, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

The nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Molecules hunting institutions, the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, and environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great Jahar's national animal is the Molecules, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Great Jahar is ranked 229,108th in the world and 9,248th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 89.84 percentage of bribes refused.
