The Grand Duchy of Johanna is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 427 million Johannans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peleetz. The average income tax rate is 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Johannan economy, worth 45.3 trillion Krupas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,096 Krupas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, and embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns. Crime is totally unknown. Johanna's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Johanna is ranked 61,963rd in the world and 45th in Kavonia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,002.76 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
