The Corporate Dictatorship of Josephland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.929 billion follower of Josephs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 36,710 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,021,744 monies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,436,410 per year while the poor average 68,116, a ratio of 94.5 to 1.

Childish pranks are no laughing matter, the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, when you fly on Air Josephland you win a seat or you die, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Josephland's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Josephland is ranked 33rd in the world and 3rd in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Patriotic, with 189.1 flags saluted per person per day.
