The Armed Republic of Joundia is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its vat-grown people, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 5.547 billion Joundians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joundian economy, worth a remarkable 1,265 trillion Mineral-Enriched Bodily Fluids a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 228,204 Mineral-Enriched Bodily Fluids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and it's never "just a game" with Joundian sports fans. Crime is totally unknown. Joundia's national animal is the Tardigrade, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Joundia is ranked 3,047th in the world and 85th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.03 on the Human Development Index.
