The Spiritual Community of NormanJackson is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Master Overlord for All Time with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.495 billion faithfuls are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of T'e Old'e Town. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient so faithful economy, worth a remarkable 3,711 trillion prayers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is an impressive 190,392 prayers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, and grocery store cereal aisles resemble a Piet Mondrian work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. NormanJackson's national animal is the parish priest, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Romanism.

NormanJackson is ranked 218,247th in the world and 905th in Europeia for Nudest, with 2.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
