The Great Jahy

Population1.855 billion


The Still Not Defeated of The Great Jahy is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.855 billion Great Jahyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 43.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Great Jahyian economy, worth 18.1 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,773 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great Jahy's national animal is the bison.

The Great Jahy is ranked 112,082nd in the world and 75th in Atlanticana for Lowest Crime Rates, with 64.46 law-abiding acts per hour.
