Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pope Joan with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, lack of airports, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.527 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 3,740 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 226,327 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, and it is rumoured that Pope Joan uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions. 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 976th in the world and 4th in Europeia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 25,470.93 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
