The Confederacy of Josu is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 907 million Josuans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Josuan economy, worth 31.1 trillion conpesoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 34,273 conpesoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, bars are packed at all hours, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Josu's national animal is the pizza, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Josu is ranked 12,108th in the world and 34th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 88.47 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
