The Emperor's Hand of Mara Jade-Skywalker is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Luke with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.25 billion Mara Jade-Skywalkerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Public Transport and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mara Jade-Skywalkerian economy, worth 553 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 170,281 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison officers are bribed not to take bribes, children have only the most basic of education, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mara Jade-Skywalker's national animal is the wookie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cards.

Mara Jade-Skywalker is ranked 224,247th in the world and 7,594th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 8 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
