Janoobi Jazair

Population3.277 billion

CapitalLake Kahuna
LeaderBig Kahuna


The Federal Republic of Janoobi Jazair is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Big Kahuna with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.277 billion Jazairis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lake Kahuna. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Janoobi Jazairian economy, worth 314 trillion jCoins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,849 jCoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the Janoobi Jazairian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, shops were recently ransacked as cigarettes returned to the shelves, and the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Janoobi Jazair's national animal is the Goldfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Faithism.

Janoobi Jazair is ranked 5,997th in the world and 185th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.9 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
