Joseph World

Population6.964 billion

LeaderPresident Tod


The Republic of Joseph World is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Tod with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.964 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyhall. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Joseph Worldian economy, worth a remarkable 1,017 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 146,178 Gils, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 534,390 per year while the poor average 28,363, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. 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 158,213th in the world and 8,022nd in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
