The Shadow Cult of Jocospor is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Shadow Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.481 billion Jocospites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vocryae. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Jocospite economy, worth a remarkable 1,931 trillion Flamas a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,308 Flamas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 646,691 per year while the poor average 38,104, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Slaves aren't half the men they used to be, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, Jocospite scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jocospor's national animal is the Finch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moderatism.

Jocospor is ranked 197,019th in the world and 253rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -8.83 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
