The United Territories of Joetobonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Nyx Cameron with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, soft-spoken computers, and otherworldly petting zoo. The cynical population of 10.959 billion Joetobonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cinigrad. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Joetobonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,705 trillion Nuyens 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 155,644 Nuyens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, gossip magazines have been replaced by mask catalogs, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joetobonia's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Unitology.

Joetobonia is ranked 192,785th in the world and 6,452nd in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5.1 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
