Jan Mackistan

The Republic of Jan Mackistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stephen Stein with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.169 billion Janns 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jannapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Jan Mackistanian economy, worth 203 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 93,655 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 265,864 per year while the poor average 26,351, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jan Mackistan's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is not applicable.

Jan Mackistan is ranked 144,353rd in the world and 6,100th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.5 Crimes Per Hour.
