The Holy Confederacy of New Jakobly is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jakob Gardner with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.36 billion Jakoblians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dartmouth. The average income tax rate is 75.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Jakoblian economy, worth 299 trillion Costas a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,920 Costas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cities in New Jakobly declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Jakobly's national animal is the White Tail Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is United Methodism.

New Jakobly is ranked 16,712th in the world and 3rd in Allied Conservative States for Lowest Crime Rates, with 83.51 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
