The Unassuming Puppet State of Americad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, vat-grown people, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.32 billion follower of Josephs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 34,796 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,044,327 monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,570,640 per year while the poor average 224,567, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Josephic emissions at all, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, the roundel of the Josephic Air Force has become an internationally recognized symbol of destruction, and slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Americad's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Americad is ranked 245,172nd in the world and 9th in The New Inquisition for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 4.7 Whatever.
