The Two Jerseys

Population17.647 billion

LeaderHM King Louis
FaithRoman Catholicism

CurrencyCaesarean Pound

The United Kingdom of The Two Jerseys is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HM King Louis with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 17.647 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Caesarean economy, worth a remarkable 2,717 trillion Caesarean Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by 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 153,994 Caesarean Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 457,116 per year while the poor average 40,701, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

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 197,809th in the world and 8,033rd in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.58 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
