The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.462 billion Pope Joaners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Healthcare, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pistis City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales industries.

Aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, most academic research has ground to a halt, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pope Joan's national animal is the tarepanda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the soul.

Pope Joan is ranked 98th in Europeia and 8,905th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 198 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
