Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Antarctica Founders of Joop is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Joop Polarbear with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and self-igniting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 26.482 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.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icetown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Joopian economy, worth a remarkable 3,806 trillion Polar Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 143,725 Polar Crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,105,197 per year while the poor average 5,005, a ratio of 220 to 1.

Students abandon classrooms for online education, euthanasia is legal, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, and the nation's coasts have been left unprotected while the entire navy sits in Brasilistani waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Joop's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Joop is ranked 28th in Antarctica and 23,061st in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
