The Federal Republic of Johto- is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its burgeoning ho-oh population. The hard-working population of 343 million Johtians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldenrod. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.7%.

The very strong Johtian economy, worth 19.6 trillion yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 57,244 yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 174,393 per year while the poor average 14,581, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Foreign football clubs wave the Johtian flag before every game, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Johto-'s national animal is the ho-oh.

Johto- is ranked 105,416th in the world and 4th in Ath and His Corner of the Multiverse for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,477.59 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
