The Grand Duchy of The Joaland Monarch State is a huge, genial nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 438 million Joalandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Münster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.9%.

The very strong Joaland Monarch Statean economy, worth 38.1 trillion Cretes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,029 Cretes, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Joaland Monarch State's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Joaland Monarch State is ranked 129,119th in the world and 25th in Creatopia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 56.99 on the Hayek Index.
