The Covviad-Chricoman State of Joshuastania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Karolëna Zwaagman with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 10.159 billion Joshuastanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jargoth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.6%.

The all-consuming Joshuastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,110 trillion Covviad-Krónas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,322 Covviad-Krónas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 362,061 per year while the poor average 24,656, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Black market eau de toilette is made in bathroom labs across the nation, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, religious education is a new government priority, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joshuastania's national animal is the White Deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Joshuastania is ranked 256,455th in the world and 22nd in Official European Union for Fattest Citizens, with 6.74 Obesity Rate.
