The Commonwealth of Jiria is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Azadi with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 784 million Jirians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruha. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Jirian economy, worth 84.7 trillion USDS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,986 USDS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 327,384 per year while the poor average 27,698, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, and motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jiria's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
Jiria is a member with a fairly developed nation, but has recently joined our forums. They are active on the RMB, providing some interesting military role play and national backstory. I'm eager to see on what they get up to in the future.
