The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.61 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 Healthcare, Commerce, 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 may cast their vote over the internet or phone, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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 31st in Europeia and 4,633rd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
