The Pitbull-owned party island of Jossel is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 581 million Pitbull fans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Worldwide Casino Kodak Meeting Room. The average income tax rate is 19.0%.

The powerhouse Pitbull-sponsored economy, worth 56.6 trillion Pitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,410 Pitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Jossel, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government is spending millions on lawyers' fees trying to get Leader off a murder charge, and Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Jossel's national animal is the Badass Sword-Wielding Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jossel is ranked 142,617th in the world and 141st in Conch Kingdom for Highest Economic Output, with 56.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
