The Glorious Technocratic State of Imperium of Josh is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Imperator Josh with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cynical population of 8.341 billion Imperials 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,324 trillion IOJ Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,785 IOJ Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-vaxxers are right about the government injecting diseases into people, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, and the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperium of Josh's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imperium of Josh is ranked 3,585th in the world and 140th in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 593.31 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
