The Groupe of Johansy is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Le gens unis de Johansy with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 2.994 billion Johansyians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 14.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Johansyian economy, worth 384 trillion Les bras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Soda Sales, Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 128,399 Les bras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Smoking is banned in public areas, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, former weapons designers now boast about their non-jamming semi-automatic nail guns, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Johansy's national animal is the Tern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Johansy is ranked 143,134th in the world and 4,970th in Lazarus for Most Pacifist, with 6.42 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
