The Empire of Joshenia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiserin Lauren II Thalberg with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.959 billion Joshenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradiz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.9%.

The all-consuming Joshenian economy, worth 451 trillion Dubrias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,011 Dubrias, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 451,325 per year while the poor average 19,474, a ratio of 23.2 to 1.

Organ donation is compulsory, restaurateurs put a lot of effort into persuading customers to accept wafer-thin mints, Kaiserin Lauren II Thalberg's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joshenia's national animal is the Paradizian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism and Lutherenism.

Joshenia is ranked 117,988th in the world and 66th in New West Indies for Highest Poor Incomes, with 19,380.32 Standard Monetary Units.
