The Grand State of Japerlasa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by One And Only with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.22 billion Japerlasans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Star City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Japerlasan economy, worth a remarkable 1,283 trillion Fox pictures a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 304,251 Fox pictures, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,026,274 per year while the poor average 66,770, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, visions of giant pink foxes are a common side effect after Japerlasans eat their meals, most academic research has ground to a halt, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Japerlasa's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Japerlasa is ranked 14,200th in the world and 647th in Balder for Highest Economic Output, with 1,283 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
