Nation Information Edit
Joysey is a growing, mostly developed, and established nation at 147 days old with citizens primarily of Caucasian ethnicity whose religion is Christianity. It is a backwards nation when it comes to technology and many refer to it unkindly as a 'Third World Nation'. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Joysey work diligently to produce Pigs and Water as tradable resources for their nation. It is an aggressive country that some say has an itch for war. Joysey is currently researching nuclear technology for the use of nuclear power plants but believes nuclear weapons should be banned. Plans are on the way within Joysey to open new rehabilitation centers across the nation and educate its citizens of the dangers of drug use. Joysey allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Joysey believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Joysey will not make deals with another country that has a poor history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
Joysey was founded out of the ruins of the state formerly known as New Jersey. After the Great Collapse of '42, in which the state took in more money than it spent for the first time in 183 years, the entire region immediately went into a state of economic shock and political anarchy. It was at this time Joysey was founded, dedicated to the past fiscal policies of New Jersey that had served it so well.
Joysey claims all of the former New Jersey as its ancestral homeland, and also lays stake to the Island of Staten because "it's so much closer to us than New York".
Its leaders are rumored to have military ambitions for New York City and Philadelphia, but military experts question whether Joysey can project force that far outside its borders
