3. Background: The Confederation was formed in 2012, born of the collapse of the Holy Orthodox Empire and the fear of neighbouring expansionist states.

6. Population: 26,900,000

7. Gross Domestic Product (GDP): $12.5 Trillion

OOC: $12.5 Trillion? That sounds a bit over the top! To compare, the US have a GDP of  $15.1 trillion with a population of 314 million. That means that the GDP per capita in CoJ is roughly $480.000! According to IMF, Qatar have the highest GDP per capita in the world with $102.000, and you are nearly FIVE times above that.
