The Corporate Dictatorship of Josephland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 32.282 billion follower of Josephs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. 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 32,938 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 1,020,330 monies, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,550,876 per year while the poor average 64,637, a ratio of 101 to 1.

Labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, flogging is all the rage, gambling is outlawed, and a The Alliance of Dictators Tourist Association survey has rated Josephland #1 for number twos. 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. Josephland's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Josephland is ranked 8,122nd in the world and 15th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Influential, scoring 6,463 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
