OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.121 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.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, and teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill. 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 677th in Europeia and 112,202nd in the world for Best Weather, with -570 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
