The Democratic States of Josephtan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Supreme Clitus Heraclius with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.842 billion Josephtanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympia. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephtanian economy, worth 707 trillion FoxDollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,159 FoxDollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, and the freedom to be free is always just out of reach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Josephtan's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spiritism.

Josephtan is ranked 1,863rd in the world and 2nd in New Western Empire for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 85 Valid Endorsements.
