LeaderEmperor Agustín I


The Shadow Cult of Jocospor is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Agustín I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.092 billion Jocospites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vocryae. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jocospite economy, worth a remarkable 2,235 trillion Flamas a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 184,867 Flamas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Enemy agents often find themselves caught in a bind, internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Emperor Agustín I to cartoon bears, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, and the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jocospor's national animal is the Finch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moderatism.

Jocospor is ranked 196,488th in the world and 141st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Primitive, scoring -139.69 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
