The Dual Kingdom of Joshuastania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Rosa with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 3.97 billion Joshuastanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Petersburg. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joshuastanian economy, worth 409 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 103,030 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, and the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Joshuastania's national animal is the Corsac Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Russian Orthodoxy.

Joshuastania is ranked 4,776th in the world and 5th in Official European Union for Most Devout, with 3,350.99 Prayers Per Hour.
