Joseph World

Population5.703 billion

LeaderPresident Tod


The Republic of Joseph World is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Tod with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.703 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyhall. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Joseph Worldian economy, worth 825 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 144,776 Gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 669,506 per year while the poor average 18,887, a ratio of 35.4 to 1.

Corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, Quagsiums are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. 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 21,840th in the world and 1,132nd in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 14,747.03 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
