Jones Country

The Dominion of Jones Country is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.858 billion Jones Countryians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sparta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Jones Countryian economy, worth 801 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 165,006 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jones Country's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Jones Country is ranked 133,467th in the world and 7,151st in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 12.47 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
