Joseph World

Population8.651 billion

LeaderPresident Tod


The Republic of Joseph World is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Tod with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.651 billion Josiphians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The large, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyhall. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Joseph Worldian economy, worth a remarkable 1,277 trillion Gils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 147,709 Gils, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 502,462 per year while the poor average 32,007, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, Joseph Worldian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about President Tod, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joseph World's national animal is the Quagsium, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Joseph World is ranked 51,333rd in the world and 2,482nd in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 32,086.68 Standard Monetary Units.
