Jarl Laila Law-Giver

Population4.818 billion


The Kingdom of Jarl Laila Law-Giver is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.818 billion Jarl Laila Law-Giverians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 52.7%.

The Jarl Laila Law-Giverian economy, worth 204 trillion Septims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 42,544 Septims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jarl Laila Law-Giver's national animal is the Criminals, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jarl Laila Law-Giver is ranked 90,604th in the world and 227th in Birb for Most Stationary, with 50.90605769788 Days.
