The True Pirate of Captain John Paul Jones is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.284 billion Captain John Paul Jonesians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Captain John Paul Jones City. The average income tax rate is 68.9%.

The strong Captain John Paul Jonesian economy, worth 141 trillion Buccaneers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. Average income is 61,897 Buccaneers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and Eagles deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Captain John Paul Jones's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Captain John Paul Jones is ranked 254,529th in the world and 6,670th in Balder for Most Stationary, with 1.9295473762 days.
