The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 18.12 billion Pope Joaners live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pistis City. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Pope Joanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,090 trillion souls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 225,743 souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.
All streets are privately owned toll roads, political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pope Joan's national animal is the tarepanda, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
