The Emperor's Hand of Mara Jade-Skywalker is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Luke with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 974 million Mara Jade-Skywalkerians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mara Jade-Skywalkerian economy, worth 85.2 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 87,428 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The giant 80-storey carving of Luke in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, taxpayer-funded government ads are promoting Brancaland as a premier filming location, and foreign musicians that Luke dislikes are turned away at the border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mara Jade-Skywalker's national animal is the wookie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mara Jade-Skywalker is ranked 243rd in the world and 5th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 544.88 Bank.
