The Little Brotherhood of The Real Matrix is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.489 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, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 33,518 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 1,000,883 monies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,682,456 per year while the poor average 127,807, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

Children cry as government officials steal their water pistols, returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, the phrase "you might think that but I couldn't possibly comment" is the closest you'll get to a straight answer from Josephic politicians, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. 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 21,987th in the world and 10th in The Axis of Evil for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 36.64 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
