The Commune of John Republic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President John with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, flagrant waste-dumping, and national health service. The compassionate population of 1.2 billion Johns enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of John City. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient John Republician economy, worth 140 trillion Tyrs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 117,021 Tyrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national anthem passes the Turing Test, community centers have arisen from the ashes of demolished houses of worship, prison visits increase substantially during election years, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. John Republic's national animal is the alicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

John Republic is ranked 149,675th in the world and 71st in The United Federations for Fattest Citizens, with 9.23 Obesity Rate.
