The Corporate Dictatorship of Josephland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.913 billion follower of Josephs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 34,833 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 1,027,154 monies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,006,699 per year while the poor average 82,444, a ratio of 72.9 to 1.

The army is spending millions cloning khaki-colored dinosaurs, it is often said that only Joseph could bring down Dàguó, there's no representation without taxation, and the first test of a good kindergartener is the quality of the sponge-baths they give. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Josephland's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Josephland is ranked 7th in the world and 1st in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 62,320.34 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
