The Principality of J 0 k e r is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 871 million Jokers 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.8%.

The Joker economy, worth 33.7 trillion jokes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,748 jokes, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Jennifer Government is banned, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. J 0 k e r's national animal is the pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

J 0 k e r is ranked 185,671st in the world and 6,730th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -5.48 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
