LeaderSture Nilsen


The Republic of Jamdt is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sture Nilsen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.544 billion Jamdtens 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alfjord. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jamdtian economy, worth 175 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 113,347 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Reindeer Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamdt's national animal is the reindeer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Jamdt is ranked 26,085th in the world and 1,172nd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
