The Two Jerseys

Population18.128 billion

LeaderHM King Louis
FaithRoman Catholicism

CurrencyCaesarean Pound

The United Kingdom of The Two Jerseys is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by HM King Louis with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 18.128 billion Caesareans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Princeton. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caesarean economy, worth a remarkable 2,746 trillion Caesarean Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,485 Caesarean Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Princeton Natural History Museum, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Two Jerseys's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Two Jerseys is ranked 136,463rd in the world and 5,123rd in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 90.47 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
