The Grog Chugging Nation of JoSePhViLlLe is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Joskey with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.168 billion Pirateses are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Place Where Dreams Go To Die. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse JoSePhViLlLean economy, worth 80.6 trillion Grogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 69,019 Grogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Academics are questioning the quality of the nation's newly-reprinted science textbooks, astronomers are flocking to JoSePhViLlLe to take advantage of its clear night skies, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JoSePhViLlLe's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Joskiy4life.

JoSePhViLlLe is ranked 179,600th in the world and 1st in Dont worry its Phil Swift approved for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.92 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
