The Covviad Commonwealth of Joshuastania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Reiner I with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.897 billion Joshuastanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jargoth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.7%.

The all-consuming Joshuastanian economy, worth 688 trillion Covviad-Krónas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 99,767 Covviad-Krónas, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, lavish state dinners in Jargoth are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, citizens often ask "what has information technology ever done for us?", and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joshuastania's national animal is the White Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Joshuastania is ranked 142,981st in the world and 25th in Official European Union for Largest Black Market, with 164 billion Standard Monetary Units.
