The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.072 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.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. 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 18th in Europeia and 2,592nd in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
