The Ecstatic Republic of Joviality is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Felicity A Plenty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.924 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merriment. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jovialityian economy, worth 684 trillion Smiles a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,689 Smiles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism. 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 203,950th in the world and 428th in NationStates for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -18.71 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
