The Dictatorship of Javrad is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.375 billion Javradians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Javrad City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Javradian economy, worth 781 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 329,017 Coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

90% of active duty JAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, organ donation is compulsory, and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Javrad's national animal is the human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Javrad is ranked 913th in the world and 21st in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 25,241.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
