The Holy Confederacy of New Jakobly is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jakob Gardner with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.417 billion Jakoblians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dartmouth. The average income tax rate is 76.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Jakoblian economy, worth 306 trillion Costas a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,689 Costas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, serial killers are the country's biggest import, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Jakobly's national animal is the White Tail Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is United Methodism.

New Jakobly is ranked 19,903rd in the world and 7th in Allied Conservative States for Highest Average Incomes, with 126,689.45 Standard Monetary Units.
