Juk

The Federation of Juk is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 18 million Jukians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 9.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Jukian economy, worth 1.11 trillion Lerrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 61,803 Lerrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Public shaming is the bedrock of Jukian society, saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, Falcon sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Juk's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Juk is ranked 65,298th in the world and 2,277th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 26.46 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
