The Patriarchy of Japhetia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sigurd with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.151 billion Japhetians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Japhetian economy, worth a remarkable 3,250 trillion Japhetian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 398,822 Japhetian Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,176,281 per year while the poor average 37,435, a ratio of 58.1 to 1.

Kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, and government officials across Japhetia are being "encouraged" to adopt Eagles to set an example for the populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Japhetia's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity and Japhetic Paganism.

Japhetia is ranked 6,889th in the world and 11th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Smartest Citizens, with 110.73 quips per hour.
