Economy

Energy

Despite numerous protests, Jääland mostly uses nuclear power as wind power and hydropower combined don't provide enough for residents. Jääland also lacks fossil fuels domestically and so these must be imported from elsewhere. This includes uranium for nuclear power.

Transport

Public transport is difficult to operate in the country especially in the north. Jääland, therefore, has an extensive road system mostly used by internal cargo and passenger traffic. Hellistelli International Airport is the main international gateway with the airport serving as the hub of Air Jääland.

Industry

Jääland's main industry is steel production and its main trading partner is the Florian Republic with both exchanging goods regularly. Both countries operate a free trade and movement agreement with each other.
