The Holy Empire of Pope Joan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pope Joan with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.868 billion Pope Joaners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. 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 4,203 trillion souls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 222,786 souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Pope Joan, chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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.

Pope Joan is ranked 42,056th in the world and 419th in Europeia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,460.39 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
