The Commonwealth of Jeelung is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 380 million Jeelungians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 29.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Jeelungian economy, worth 15.3 trillion Yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,369 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jeelung's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
