The Unassuming Puppet State of Americad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.239 billion followers of Joseph are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 24,387 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,006,114 monies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,620,758 per year while the poor average 132,925, a ratio of 34.8 to 1.

Protests are prohibited from blocking traffic, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Americad's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Americad is ranked 61st in the world and 1st in The New Inquisition for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 20,085.57 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
