The Legacy of Jo VIII is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Jo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.672 billion Joans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jotown. The average income tax rate is 28.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Joany economy, worth 202 trillion Euros a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 15,952 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, The Worship of Jo has been named as Jo VIII's national religion, Jo VIII has designated Jotown as its capital city, and Lady Jo has just been declared ruler of Jo VIII in an international press conference. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Jo VIII's national animal is the fly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Worship of Jo.

Jo VIII is ranked 143,706th in the world and 2nd in Warzone TMC for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 261.09 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
