The Kingdom of Joohan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord-Sovereign Dakard with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.903 billion Joohanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shafforad. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Joohanian economy, worth 193 trillion Diorums a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,691 Diorums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Wolverine hunting institutions, chess defeat has made Lord-Sovereign Dakard the laughingstock of dictators and grandmasters alike, and all guns must be registered. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joohan's national animal is the Wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Joohan is ranked 121,687th in the world and 11th in Cobalt Network for Most Primitive, scoring -107.46 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
