The Unassuming Puppet State of Americad is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, otherworldly petting zoo, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.963 billion follower of Josephs 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 37,851 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,052,519 monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,474,354 per year while the poor average 238,547, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

The government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically, red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair, rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, and only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Joseph on Americad's coulrophobia epidemic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Americad's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Americad is ranked 18,607th in the world and 2nd in The New Inquisition for Smartest Citizens, with 64.8 quips per hour.
