The Antarctica Founders of Joop is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Joop Polarbear with an even hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 23.696 billion Joopians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icetown. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Gambling and Automobile Manufacturing.
College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and students abandon classrooms for online education. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Joop's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Atheism, and its currency is the Polar Crown.
