The Patriarchy of Japhetia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Caligula with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.492 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 Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alba. The average income tax rate is 29.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Japhetian economy, worth a remarkable 1,269 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 282,580 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. 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 3,406th in the world and 5th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Rudest Citizens, with 171.72 Insults Per Minute.
