Location: the Rejected Realms

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Colony of Jamm is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 16.855 billion Jammians 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Jammian economy, worth 59.1 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 3,509 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamm's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Jamm is ranked 235,291st in the world and 7,469th in the Rejected Realms for Rudest Citizens, with 10.56 Insults Per Minute.
