The Kingdom of Joohan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lord-Sovereign Dakard with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.284 billion Joohanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shafforad. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Joohanian economy, worth 517 trillion Diorums a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,034 Diorums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When shaking hands with foreign leaders Lord-Sovereign Dakard wears an armoured gauntlet, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Joohanian Navy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 63,067th in the world and 1st in Vaporwave Paradise for Most Stationary, with 355.27051568228 Days.
