Jasmi

The Republic of Jasmi is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 403 million Jasmians 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, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Jasmian economy, worth 17.6 trillion maizes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,752 maizes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jasmi's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Jasmi is ranked 98,411th in the world and 4,803rd in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 57.22 on the Human Development Index.
