The Patriarchy of Japhetia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Caligula with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.259 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, although Industry, Administration, and Education are also considered important, 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 16.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Japhetian economy, worth a remarkable 1,075 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 252,506 Denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 777,269 per year while the poor average 63,370, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

The Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Japhetia, and nations across the world are quick to praise Caligula's good looks and intellectual prowess. 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 200,317th in the world and 145th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Primitive, scoring -421.61 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
