The Toxic Waste Dump of Jovuistan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Miguel Velez with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working population of 10.4 billion Jovu have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miami. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jovu economy, worth 747 trillion Prendergolds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 71,851 Prendergolds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All footpaths have tollbooths, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice, and beating a dead horse is a scientific endeavor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jovuistan's national animal is the Jillbus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jovuistan is ranked 139,302nd in the world and 4,802nd in Osiris for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 670.72 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
