The Rogue Nation of Joe_the_Techy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Joe the Techy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.732 billion Techyians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sector Omega. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Techyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,122 trillion Techy coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,631 Techy coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Joe_the_Techy, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and for 25 Techy coins tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joe_the_Techy's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is TECHYISM.

Joe_the_Techy is ranked 158,582nd in the world and 6,224th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.13 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
