The Queendom of Joshuastania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Roza María with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.706 billion Joshuastanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reykjavík. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.1%.

The all-consuming Joshuastanian economy, worth 462 trillion Krónas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,223 Krónas, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Only the fast and the furious are brave enough to drive, looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, Queen Roza María often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, and royal mothers accustomed to baby-talk assure the troops "we gweatly wespect your service; yes, we do". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Joshuastania's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lutheran Church of Iceland.

Joshuastania is ranked 157,694th in the world and 20th in Official European Union for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.16 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
