Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.051 billion Pope Joaners live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

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 2,453 trillion souls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 188,002 souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Pepsi and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. 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 694th in Europeia and 107,986th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 9 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
