The Jack of All Trades of Dead I Jack is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Deadeye Jack with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.817 billion Dead I Jackians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Triumph. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dead I Jackian economy, worth a remarkable 1,308 trillion gold bars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,692 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future leaders of Dead I Jack regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, reports of attacks by bright purple sixty-foot high spiders have recently shot up, there is a growing belief that mothers love their children more than fathers, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dead I Jack's national animal is the coyote, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dead I Jack is ranked 57,766th in the world and 1,037th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
