The Notorious Mad Jack

Population571 million


The Rogue Nation of The Notorious Mad Jack is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 571 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 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Notorious Mad Jackian economy, worth 37.4 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 65,506 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, the decommissioned tank divisions of other nations are being bought up en masse by The Notorious Mad Jack, and untold millions of kronor are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme. 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 151,733rd in the world and 8,158th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 52.77 Workforce Participation Rate.
