The Holy Joeyist Paradise of Joevala is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Zeppelin with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 3.811 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 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joeyist economy, worth 775 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 203,614 Beatles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Zeppelin's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, Zeppelin's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, and the government has enacted freedom of information. 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 193,828th in the world and 8,525th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.84 Crimes Per Hour.
