The Spiritual Community of NormanJackson is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Master Overlord for All Time with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.043 billion faithfuls are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of T'e Old'e Town. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient so faithful economy, worth a remarkable 3,541 trillion prayers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is an impressive 185,949 prayers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Joggers are often arrested for breathing too heavily, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, and vacationing faithfuls expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. NormanJackson's national animal is the parish priest, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Romanism.

NormanJackson is ranked 5,183rd in the world and 16th in Europeia for Most Stationary, with 2,181.70693704 Days.
