Jackson, officially the United States of Jackson, is a country located in the southwest of the continent Ecros. Its eastern border is made up by the Jack River and Lake Manal. To its south is the Andaluzian Sea and to its west is inhospitable mountains. Jackson's largest city and capital of Jacksonville City is located near the eastern border on the Jack River, although the cities of Benice, Nemeth, and Greenville are also regarded as important historical capitals.
Jackson is led by President Sydney Johnson, the 11th president of Jackson. Jackson is notable for its many major cities and vast urban landscape, a ban on privately owned vehicles, and many high quality cheeses. Jackson has 3 political parties, see list of current political outcomes here.
Founding of Jackson
Jackson sits upon Lake Manal and the Jack River to the east, which provide ocean access and flat lands to farm and build cities on. To the south is the Andaluzian Sea, which provides rougher, but more direct, access to the ocean for Greenville. To the west of Jackson is sparsely populated mountainous terrain. There are many valleys between the mountains which provide great land for agriculture via irrigation, mining, and manufacturing. Jackson controls more than half of Lake Manal, making it the dominant force in that region. The many port cities on the lake make it one of the busiest shipping lanes in all of Terraconserva.
Jackson's economy is almost solely reliant on exports, financial services, and tourism. There are no taxes at all in Jackson, with the government making a bulk of its income in tariffs. Jackson's biggest exports are cheese, medical technology, and manufactured goods. Financial services and tourism only take place in major cities. Jackson's biggest imports are raw ores, food products, and refugees from Terranihil. Jackson's economy has only recently moved away from mainly cheese exports as a source of revenue due to the influx of tourists coming to Jackson and rapidly industrializing cities. Jackson judges the financial stability in nations using the Jackson Credit Score operated by Madison Credit Company, which in turn judges its trading partners. It should also be noted that Jackson has signed the Nemeth Accords, providing more economic growth and trade with Quebecshire and Eleutherios.

This can be seen on the official Jackian travel advisory where allies like Ajakanistan get rated higher than non-allies, even if they may be safer for Jackian citizens. Jackson is allied with Quebecshire and Eleutherios due to the Nemeth Accords, an economic and defense alliance. Jackson mainly is allied with other democracies and countries it has embassies in.
