The Petrifying Procrastinations of The Free Joy State is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Exalted Holiness with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.792 billion Free Joyers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Central City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Free Joyish economy, worth a remarkable 2,570 trillion Sweetings 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 amazing 238,210 Sweetings, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,345,966 per year while the poor average 20,700, a ratio of 65.0 to 1.

Soldiers go to war dressed in cassocks and robes, believers who wear their faith on their sleeves make easy targets in hostile areas, unwilling fathers wish they had looked for a late-night pharmacy, and no true communist is an unbeliever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Free Joy State's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The True Church of the Exalted Holiness.

The Free Joy State is ranked 70,808th in the world and 2,837th in the Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,625.89 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
