The Little Brotherhood of The Real Matrix is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.138 billion followers of Joseph 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 31,945 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 994,002 monies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,182,313 per year while the poor average 153,303, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

Psychological disorders are a taboo subject, a The Axis of Evil Tourist Association survey has rated The Real Matrix #1 for number twos, the country is preparing for war, and blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents. 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. The Real Matrix's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

The Real Matrix is ranked 3,421st in the world and 2nd in The Axis of Evil for Highest Poor Incomes, with 153,303.91 Standard Monetary Units.
