The Little Brotherhood of The Real Matrix is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.241 billion followers of Joseph are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 36,138 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 997,177 monies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,522,450 per year while the poor average 90,622, a ratio of 60.9 to 1.

Gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Josephic Colonial Thesaurus, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. 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. The Real Matrix's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

The Real Matrix is ranked 573rd in the world and 2nd in The Axis of Evil for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 44,797.78 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
