The Spiritual Community of NormanJackson is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by its Supreme Master Overlord with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, disturbing lack of elderly people, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.467 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."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — 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 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient so faithful economy, worth a remarkable 2,922 trillion prayers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 167,309 prayers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aides are afraid to ask if Its Supreme Master Overlord wants a cup of tea or coffee, NormanJackson's fine wines are renowned throughout the region, priests are being drafted by the church load, and the most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones. 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 164,965th in the world and 857th in Europeia for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 3.29 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
