The Ice Cream Sandwiches of Joshpopua is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Joshua T with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.875 billion Joshpopuans 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nathe. The average income tax rate is 4.3%.

The thriving Joshpopuan economy, worth 429 trillion Josh Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 88,016 Josh Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Joshua T's bedroom, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Joshpopua's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Joshpopua is ranked 22,046th in the world and 45th in Telekinesis for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,803.89 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
