The Goodbye NS of New Jakobly is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jakob Gardner with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.57 billion Jakoblians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dartmouth. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jakoblian economy, worth 319 trillion Costas a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,345 Costas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, the last thing Jakoblian soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Jakobly's national animal is the White Tail Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is United Methodism.

New Jakobly is ranked 27,315th in the world and 6th in Allied Conservative States for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,735.69 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
