The Evening Dews and Damps of Jokhang is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 10.906 billion Jokhangians 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 34.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Jokhangian economy, worth 986 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,477 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, and people who get diabetes can sue donut manufacturers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jokhang's national animal is the Laughing swordfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Jokhang is ranked 208,455th in the world and 1st in Jokhang for Highest Drug Use, scoring 23.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
