Joseph World

Population6.442 billion

LeaderPresident Tod


The Republic of Joseph World is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Tod with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.442 billion Josiphians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The large, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyhall. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Joseph Worldian economy, worth 932 trillion Gils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 144,813 Gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 562,165 per year while the poor average 25,536, a ratio of 22.0 to 1.

Half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove', the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Joseph World flights to avoid the pay lavatories, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joseph World's national animal is the Quagsium, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Joseph World is ranked 164,434th in the world and 9,587th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -29.03 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
