The Republic of Jospint is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.069 billion Jospintians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Jospintian economy, worth a remarkable 1,103 trillion Towels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,064 Towels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jospint's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Jospint is ranked 133,856th in the world and 4,798th in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36.22 on the Rand Index.
