The Holy Joeyist Paradise of Joevala is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zeppelin with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 3.793 billion Joeyists 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joeyist economy, worth 772 trillion Beatles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 203,758 Beatles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Joeyists, and the elderly don't know who the dickens adorns the face of newly-issued banknotes. Crime is totally unknown. Joevala's national animal is the Kangaroo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Joeyism.

Joevala is ranked 199,494th in the world and 8,648th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -410.7 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
