The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.948 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.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. 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 34th in Europeia and 5,063rd in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
