Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pope Joan with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 16.147 billion Pope Joaners enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pistis City. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Pope Joanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,576 trillion souls a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 221,521 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pope Joan has taken the radical step of electing its future leaders, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Pope Joan, and nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise. 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 166,731st in the world and 1,733rd in Europeia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 2.87 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
