The Republic of Lost Nation of Joy is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 212 million Lost Nation of Joyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Lost Nation of Joyian economy, worth 6.48 trillion Won a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,546 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lost Nation of Joy's national animal is the Canary, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
