The Dictatorship of Joshua Winter is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joshua Winter with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.928 billion Joshua Winterians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levita. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Joshua Winterian economy, worth 575 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 298,556 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, you gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joshua Winter's national animal is the penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Our leader our God.
