The Hotly Disputed Territories of Enphili Jumpgate is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by guy hiding in a bunker with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.159 billion Enphilis are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enphili Homeworld. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The all-consuming Enphili Jumpgatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,953 trillion care packges a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 92,323 care packges, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 307,285 per year while the poor average 20,669, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', gun ownership is compulsory, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Enphili Jumpgate's national animal is the space pirate, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Enphili Jumpgate is ranked 173,452nd in the world and 8th in Babylon 5 for Most Average, scoring 31.57 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
