The Republic of Joshahno is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.44 billion Joshahnoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Joshahnoan economy, worth 25.2 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 17,502 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joshahno's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Joshahno is ranked 158,786th in the world and 4th in New Region Name for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.33 Crimes Per Hour.
