“You Can't Stop Progress”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The North Pacific
The Republic of Jan Mackistan is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 804 million Janns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jannapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.9%.
The all-consuming Jan Mackistanian economy, worth 71.8 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,323 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.
Thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, violent criminals are doomed to be hunted by a psychotic billionaire, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jan Mackistan's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
