The Sovereign Military Junta of Peoples Republic of Joyea is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Chairman Joyeah with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.734 billion Joyeans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joyeah City. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joyean economy, worth 254 trillion Joyeah noodles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,732 Joyeah noodles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, and wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Joyeah City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peoples Republic of Joyea's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Joyean Orthodox Christian.

Peoples Republic of Joyea is ranked 17,003rd in the world and 1st in Peoples Republic of Joyeah for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,343.63 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
