The Glorious Empire of Iapetan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Valeria with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.926 billion Iapetanians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Iapetanian economy, worth 640 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,983 Dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 747,067 per year while the poor average 10,864, a ratio of 68.8 to 1.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, the study of medicine is popular throughout Iapetan, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iapetan's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Iapetan is ranked 3,708th in the world and 8th in Codex Ylvus for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6,689.07 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
