The Rogue Nation of Jakeon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jacques with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.481 billion Subjectss are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jakeon city. The average income tax rate is 6.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Jakeonian economy, worth 922 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 205,922 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Everyone apparently sends Jacques hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, the Jakeonian basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jakeon's national animal is the Raptor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Jakeon is ranked 5,828th in the world and 4th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Highest Average Incomes, with 205,922.73 Standard Monetary Units.
