The Free Joy State was Condemned by Security Council Resolution # 333

The Petrifying Procrastinations of The Free Joy State is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Exalted Holiness with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, fear of technology, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.191 billion Free Joyers 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 prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Central City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Free Joyish economy, worth a remarkable 2,987 trillion Sweetings 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 an amazing 245,088 Sweetings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,083,464 per year while the poor average 34,683, a ratio of 31.2 to 1.

Police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, above The Free Joy State there is only sky and the fear of the unknown, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over The Free Joy State. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Free Joy State's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The True Church of the Exalted Holiness.

The Free Joy State is ranked 31,809th in the world and 710th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,700.59 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
