LeaderGrand-Emperor Dominic Richardson Stuart


The Empire of Jefferson Club is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand-Emperor Dominic Richardson Stuart with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.442 billion Jefferson Clubians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gondor. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Jefferson Clubian economy, worth 236 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,876 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, the nation's endangered species are no longer endangered, there's no such thing as a safe bet, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jefferson Club's national animal is the Jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violence.

Jefferson Club is ranked 114,206th in the world and 103rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Armed, with 0.33 Weapons Per Person.
