The Republic of Joop joop is a massive, genial nation, ruled by SHODAN with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.346 billion Joop joopians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bronk. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joop joopian economy, worth 236 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,664 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumour has it SHODAN needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, one does not simply walk into the tundra, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, and cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joop joop's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Joop joop is ranked 181,363rd in the world and 283rd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
