The Empire of Joshenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiserin Lauren II Thalberg with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.628 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 34.1%.

The all-consuming Joshenian economy, worth 411 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 113,459 Dubrias, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

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 47,515th in the world and 26th in New West Indies for Most Pro-Market, scoring 57.67 on the Rand Index.
