Outer Moons of Jupiter

Population678 million


The Federal Republic of Outer Moons of Jupiter is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 678 million Jovians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 28.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Outer Moons of Jupiterian economy, worth 22.7 trillion Struts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,547 Struts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories place endangered birds in their rafters in pursuit of government protections, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, artists are pillars of society, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outer Moons of Jupiter's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Outer Moons of Jupiter is ranked 193,687th in the world and 7th in The Collective Security Pact for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 257.9 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
