“Masks On Jan Mackistan... For now.” Stephen Stein
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The North Pacific
The Nationstates Official Union of Jan Mackistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Stephen Stein with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.36 billion Janns 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jannapolis. The average income tax rate is 32.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Jan Mackistanian economy, worth 220 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 93,476 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, and corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt. 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, and its national religion is not applicable.
