The Holy Joeyist Paradise of Joevala is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Montbean with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.078 billion Joeyists enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Joeyist economy, worth a remarkable 3,321 trillion Valies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 274,993 Valies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Montbean performing the Full-Monty are selling out, autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, new mothers can pay for their weekly grocery shop with a bottle of breast milk, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime is totally unknown. Joevala's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Joeyism.

Joevala is ranked 89,007th in the world and 2,033rd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 69.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
