The Little Brotherhood of The Real Matrix is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.801 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 32,697 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 996,830 monies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,406,695 per year while the poor average 141,066, a ratio of 31.2 to 1.

The national anthem's only purpose is to inflate Joseph's ever-expanding ego, takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, reddish-brown is the new black, and the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty". 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 18th in the world and 1st in The Axis of Evil for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 26,645.33 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
