The Emperor's Hand of Mara Jade-Skywalker is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Luke with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.997 billion Mara Jade-Skywalkerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mara Jade-Skywalkerian economy, worth 251 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 125,965 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

An enormous health awareness programme is underway, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, the skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Mara Jade-Skywalkerian Desert, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime is moderate. Mara Jade-Skywalker's national animal is the wookie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cards.

Mara Jade-Skywalker is ranked 197,343rd in the world and 7,825th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 38.55 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
