Location: The East Pacific



Population560 million



The Constitutional Monarchy of Jakubonia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 560 million Jakubonaks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centrum. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Jakubon economy, worth 45.5 trillion Lucrums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,311 Lucrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Jakubonia, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, pet rocks are sold by the pound, and doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Jakubonia's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jakubonia is ranked 27,489th in the world and 812th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 79.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
