“Fear is a powerful tool.” Tiny Tim

Regional Influence: Hermit
The Reborn nation of Joergenland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Tiny Tim with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, otherworldly petting zoo, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.907 billion Joergenians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grenadia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Joergenlandian economy, worth 387 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 202,990 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 781,961 per year while the poor average 36,244, a ratio of 21.6 to 1.
Major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, the first test of a good kindergartener is the quality of the sponge-baths they give, and on-duty Air Joergenland flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joergenland's national animal is the hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.
