The Shadow Cult of Jocospor is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Agustín I with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.713 billion Jocospites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vocryae. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jocospite economy, worth a remarkable 2,128 trillion Flamas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 181,746 Flamas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jocospor's national animal is the Finch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moderatism.

Jocospor is ranked 3,691st in the world and 36th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 62.52 Whatever.
