The Dim and Flaring Lamps of Jo Jo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ritual sacrifices, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The cynical population of 19.824 billion Jo Joans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Jo Joan economy, worth 996 trillion $$s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,262 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jo Jo's national animal is the ^-^, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jo Jo is ranked 83,060th in the world and 1st in Joseph Stalin for Highest Drug Use, scoring 80 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
