The Harbinger of Destruction of J o J is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Vassal of Eradication with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.922 billion J o Jians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Abyss. The average income tax rate is 77.0%.

The frighteningly efficient J o Jian economy, worth a remarkable 1,891 trillion Pointless Monetary Units a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,682 Pointless Monetary Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and the horniness of the great-horned Irrelevant Creature is considered a national priority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. J o J's national animal is the Irrelevant Creature, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Obliteration of the Self.

J o J is ranked 15,673rd in the world and 1st in J o J for Highest Poor Incomes, with 89,701.91 Standard Monetary Units.
