The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.122 billion 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 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 Book Publishing industries.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the children of Pope Joan are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. 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 801st in Europeia and 119,574th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -12 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
