The Indomitable Dominions of Joey Wu Empire is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Wu with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, vat-grown people, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.995 billion Child of Wus 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragon's Den. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Wuan economy, worth a remarkable 5,453 trillion Equations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 419,639 Equations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, and nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joey Wu Empire's national animal is the Basilisk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Wu Worship.

Joey Wu Empire is ranked 8,780th in the world and 311th in Osiris for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 49.35 Bank.
