The Federation of Japba is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Angela Wright with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.247 billion Japbans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaeino. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Japban economy, worth 567 trillion Japban Nickels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,074 Japban Nickels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, environmental legislation occurs cyclically, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Japban Nickel mansions. Crime is totally unknown. Japba's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Japba is ranked 22,351st in the world and 1,274th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 57.93 quips per hour.
