The Kingdom of Joohan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord-Sovereign Dakard with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 2.022 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, well-organized 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 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Joohanian economy, worth 125 trillion Diorums a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,279 Diorums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. 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 97,304th in the world and 3,807th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 87,592.28 Standard Monetary Units.
