The Holy Empire of Iphen is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its aversion to nipples. The cynical, devout population of 32 million Iphenians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Environment are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The developing Iphenian economy, worth 938 billion rubies a year, is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,318 rubies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, a government program is underway to revitalize Iphen's beaches, and towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iphen's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iphen is ranked 73,353rd in the world and 3,859th in the South Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 13 Average Smiles Per Day.
