The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.257 billion, 10.177 billion of whom are zombies, 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.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, government officials across Pope Joan are being "encouraged" to adopt tarepandas to set an example for the populace, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. 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 25th in Europeia and 3,995th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Pope Joan is currently considering its options.
