The Corporate Dictatorship of Josephland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, aversion to nipples, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.663 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, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. 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 28,834 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 1,005,996 monies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,137,365 per year while the poor average 161,270, a ratio of 25.7 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 34th in the world and 1st in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 31,846.86 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
