|Leader||President Supreme Clitus Heraclius|
The Democratic States of Josephtan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Supreme Clitus Heraclius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.91 billion Josephtanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous 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 937 trillion FoxDollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,575 FoxDollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in New Western Empire, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. 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.
