The Grand State of Japerlasa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by One And Only with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.07 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, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. 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 1,181 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 290,395 Fox pictures, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

University graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, a Balder Tourist Association survey has rated Japerlasa #1 for number twos, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', and the Treasury and Finance Ministry have been outsourced. 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 15,501st in the world and 742nd in Balder for Highest Economic Output, with 1,181 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
