The United Socialist States of Jostanne is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed population of 326 million Jostanneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Jostannean economy, worth 9.44 trillion Alejandro Candles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,942 Alejandro Candles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble.

Jostanne's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jostanne is ranked 57,137th in the world and 869th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.06 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
