The Ecstatic Republic of Joviality is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Felicity A Plenty with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.143 billion Jovialites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merriment. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jovialityian economy, worth 715 trillion Smiles a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,940 Smiles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, Felicity A Plenty's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Joviality's national animal is the sea otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Aquarium Therapy.

Joviality is ranked 237,826th in the world and 524th in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -6.32 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
