The Corrupt Dictatorship of Jaoheah is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jaoheah with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.287 billion Jaoheahians 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaoka. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Jaoheahian economy, worth a remarkable 1,393 trillion Jaoteks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 263,505 Jaoteks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,379,384 per year while the poor average 27,006, a ratio of 51.1 to 1.

Citizens have an obligation to remain silent and anything they say may be used against them, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jaoheah's national animal is the Jeagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Jaoisim.

Jaoheah is ranked 17,742nd in the world and 1st in Jaoheah for Most Developed, scoring 84.96 on the Human Development Index.
