The Ecstatic Republic of Joviality is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Felicity A Plenty with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.425 billion Jovialites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merriment. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jovialityian economy, worth 719 trillion Smiles a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,937 Smiles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and brain injury is seen as a desirable outcome rather than a side effect of contact sports. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Joviality's national animal is the sea otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Aquarium Therapy.

Joviality is ranked 231,846th in the world and 216th in NationStates for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 38 Whatever.
