The Republic of Jan Mackistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Stephen Stein with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.15 billion Janns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jannapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Jan Mackistanian economy, worth 202 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 94,403 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,367 per year while the poor average 26,510, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.
Pros are the new cons, medical lawsuits are out of control, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and the government merely pays lip service to not applicable. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jan Mackistan's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is not applicable.
