Government and politics
Jarin is a parliamentary democracy where the prime minister is the head of government and the most powerful executive position. The political system has three branches — legislative, executive and judicial, with universal suffrage for citizens at least 18 years old. The Constitution also provides possibilities of direct democracy, namely petitions and national referenda. Elections are supervised by an independent Central Election Commission that includes members from all major political parties. Parties must register with the commission prior to participating in a national election. Normally, the prime minister-elect is the leader of the party receiving the most votes in parliamentary elections, although this is not always the case.
Unlike the prime minister, presidential domestic power is more limited. The directly elected president serves as head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces, and has the authority to return a bill for further debate, although the parliament can override the presidential veto by a simple majority vote. Political parties gather in the National Assembly, a body of 290 deputies elected to four-year terms by direct popular vote. The National Assembly has the power to enact laws, approve the budget, schedule presidential elections, select and dismiss the prime minister and other ministers, declare war, deploy troops abroad, and ratify international treaties and agreements.
Law and judicial system
Jarin has a civil law legal system. The judiciary is overseen by the Ministry of Justice. The Supreme Administrative Court and the Supreme Court of Cassation are the highest courts of appeal and oversee the application of laws in subordinate courts. The Supreme Judicial Council manages the system and appoints judges. The legal system is regarded by both domestic and international observers as one of the Mesogean's most inefficient due to pervasive lack of transparency and corruption. Law enforcement is carried out by organizations mainly subordinate to the Ministry of the Interior. The Directorate of National Police combats general crime and maintains public order.
Jarin is a unitary state.
Jarin became a member of the Adonian Community in 1953. Jarin became a full member of the Kaftian Union on 8 March 1995, and became an associate member of the Mesogean Cooperation Organization on 28 October 1998. Jarin's relationships vary greatly between Kaftian, Mesogean and Near Eastern states. Jarin has had strong ties with the MOZ in order to gain economic and political benefits. Burawa, Volisania and Aetolia remain the primary trade partners, as well as the primary creditors and foreign investors in Jarin. From the total foreign investments in Jarin, the MOZ invests approximately 83.5%, whereas non-Mesogean Kaftia invests only 9.3%. Many countries from the Near East are getting more involved in large-scale development projects in Jarin, such as Kandar.
In addition, it has a tripartite economic and diplomatic collaboration with Orma and Itagar, good ties with Burawa and Lagash and a historical relationship with Aetolia. Ties between Jarin and other non-Mesogean South Kaftian nations, including its neighbors Desket and Enfolo, have often been strained. Tensions with Desket are mostly rooted in historical rivalry and competition over influence in Southeast Kaftia. A border dispute between Enfolo and Jarin is the source of their strained relations, which is also fueled by illegal immigration from Enfolo to Jarin.
Domestic defense is the responsibility of the all-volunteer Jarinian Armed Forces, composed of land forces, naval forces and an air force. Active troops dwindled from around 300,000 in 1990 to 145,000 in 2016, supplemented by 250,000 reservists and 30,000 paramilitary. Inventory is mostly made up of Mesogean equipment like Aeka JAS 39 Gripen and MiG-29 jets, NH90 helicopters, and AS-56 main battle tanks.
Historically an agrarian economy, Jarin urbanized rapidly in the 20th century. By 2016 just 10.39% of the workforce were employed in agriculture, generating just 7.1% of GDP; 37.82% of the workforce were employed in industry and 51.79% in services, responsible for 37.1% and 55.8% of GDP respectively. The country's economic production is dominated by its strong domestic demand. Consumption expenditure by households is the largest component of GDP. Jarin's main exports are food, beverage, apparel, computers, televisions, smartphones, home appliance, and chemicals; its major trade partners are Burawa, Volisania, Aetolia, Orma and Triphylia.
The average national unemployment rate in 2016 was 9.6%, although the informality is the biggest problem facing the labor market (the income of formal workers climbed 24.8% in 5 years while labor incomes of informal workers rose only 9%). The Debt-to-GDP ratio continues to decline to 43.8% as of 2016. Although one of the main obstacles still facing the Jarinian economy is the limited trickle down of wealth to the average population, many Jarinians criticize their government for higher prices of basic goods while their standards of living or purchasing power remains relatively stagnant. Corruption is often cited by Jarinians as the main impediment to further economic growth.
