The Emperor's Hand of Mara Jade-Skywalker is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Luke with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.961 billion Mara Jade-Skywalkerians 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 86.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mara Jade-Skywalkerian economy, worth 247 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 126,213 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Wookie Dung" has been declared a national treasure, mountains of VHS tapes of police actions are stacking up in the National Library, and hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Mara Jade-Skywalker's national animal is the wookie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cards.

Mara Jade-Skywalker is ranked 138,934th in the world and 5,279th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 46.1 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
