The Corporate Dictatorship of Josephland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.511 billion follower of Josephs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 34,358 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 1,025,283 monies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,059,319 per year while the poor average 80,254, a ratio of 75.5 to 1.

Foreign lack of enthusiasm for Josephic nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, monks aren't the only ones who take vows of silence, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and people are often woken up by rubbish music. 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 12th in the world and 2nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Highest Economic Output, with 34,358 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
