The Patriarchy of Japhetia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Sigurd with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.652 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, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Japhetian economy, worth a remarkable 3,452 trillion Japhetian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 399,078 Japhetian Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,098,928 per year while the poor average 40,503, a ratio of 51.8 to 1.

Slaves who produce weapons are given free samples, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 6,931st in the world and 10th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Smartest Citizens, with 111.4 quips per hour.
