The Antarctica Founders of Joop is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joop Polarbear with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 23.867 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.

Joop is ranked 36th in Antarctica and 89,992nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -52 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
