The Corporate Dictatorship of Josephland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 32.963 billion follower of Josephs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 33,718 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,022,933 monies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,492,813 per year while the poor average 66,838, a ratio of 97.1 to 1.

Women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Josephland's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Josephland is ranked 21st in the world and 1st in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 26,504.44 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
