The Notorious Mad Jack

The Rogue Nation of The Notorious Mad Jack is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 564 million Notorious Mad Jackians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Notorious Mad Jackian economy, worth 36.7 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,149 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Skateparks can be found in every city, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, replacement organs are grown in vats, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Notorious Mad Jack's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Notorious Mad Jack is ranked 79,713th in the world and 4,117th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 18.69 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
