The Patriarchy of Japhetia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Perseus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.94 billion Japhetians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Japhetian economy, worth a remarkable 1,706 trillion Japhetian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 287,267 Japhetian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Japhetian Dollars each year, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Japhetia's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity and Japhetic Paganism.

Japhetia is ranked 10,185th in the world and 20th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Highest Economic Output, with 1,706 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
