The Democratic Republic of Joaquin States is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Joaquin The III with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.047 billion Joaquinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joaquin DC. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joaquin Statesian economy, worth 808 trillion Joaquin Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,096 Joaquin Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime is totally unknown. Joaquin States's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secularism.

Joaquin States is ranked 163,423rd in the world and 5,084th in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
