The Grand State of Japerlasa is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by One And Only with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.014 billion Japerlasans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Star City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Japerlasan economy, worth a remarkable 1,155 trillion Fox pictures a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 287,851 Fox pictures, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the government spends millions of Fox pictures every year prosecuting spammers, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. 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 3,258th in the world and 184th in Balder for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 726,689 Standard Monetary Units.
