The 1st Federation of The Joeanian Republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Joe Sacharewicz with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.05 billion Joeanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nove. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joeanian economy, worth 299 trillion Joeanian Dimes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,197 Joeanian Dimes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, group hugs break out during floor votes, the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, and government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Joeanian Republic's national animal is the Joeanian Shepherd, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Joeanian Republic is ranked 32,760th in the world and 51st in Institute of Cellulose for Most Patriotic, with 26.42 flags saluted per person per day.
