The Covviad Commonwealth of Joshuastania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Reiner I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.172 billion Joshuastanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jargoth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Joshuastanian economy, worth 790 trillion Covviad-Krónas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,182 Covviad-Krónas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 322,355 per year while the poor average 29,723, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, and Harry Potter books are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joshuastania's national animal is the White Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Joshuastania is ranked 42,759th in the world and 11th in Official European Union for Most Beautiful Environments, with 700.49 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
