The Constitutional Monarchy of Joaland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 239 million Joalandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Joalandian economy, worth 14.3 trillion Cretes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 59,849 Cretes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joaland's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Joaland is ranked 22,516th in the world and 7th in Creatopia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,073.43 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
