The Empire of Joeish Artaeia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Hans Jėrgon with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.929 billion Joeish Artaeians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparkox. The average income tax rate is 4.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Joeish Artaeian economy, worth 120 trillion Arts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,578 Arts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, religious education is a new government priority, and even in a one-horse town police are as common as fleas on a stray dog. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Joeish Artaeia's national animal is the Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Joedaism.

Joeish Artaeia is ranked 131,659th in the world and 5th in The Independent States of Akrieus for Most Devout, with 8.34 Prayers Per Hour.
