The Federation of Johanic is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, devout population of 107 million Johanicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Johanician economy, worth 3.18 trillion Labour Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,762 Labour Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Johanician democracy, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Johanicians, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Johanic's national animal is the fat mother cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Johanic is ranked 136,397th in the world and 37th in The levellers for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
