Joostlandia

The Dictatorship of Joostlandia is a very large, safe nation, notable for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 192 million Joostlandians 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, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Joostlandian economy, worth 6.76 trillion Joostis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,219 Joostis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, it's scientifically provable that Joostlandian guys don't know how to make a woman happy, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joostlandia's national animal is the Hare, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Joostlandia is ranked 101,723rd in the world and 5th in The United European Block for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 422.26 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
