OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.811 billion Pope Joaners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pistis City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pope Joanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,402 trillion souls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 187,499 souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Pope Joan Blood Tithe. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pope Joan's national animal is the tarepanda, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pope Joan is ranked 763rd in Europeia and 98,187th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -43.5 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
