The Neutral Country of Joshatu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joshua the Great with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.75 billion Joshatuans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of May City. The average income tax rate is 37.1%.

The strong Joshatuan economy, worth 112 trillion Jollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,148 Jollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', meat-eating is frowned upon, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Joshatu, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Joshua the Great's most personal functions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Joshatu's national animal is the Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Joshatuism.

Joshatu is ranked 60,969th in the world and 103rd in The United Federations for Most Politically Free, scoring 67.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
