The Oppressive Oppressors of Israeli Airstrikes is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.866 billion follower of Josephs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 22,654 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 911,047 monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,729,064 per year while the poor average 237,708, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.

Concussed viperball players cannot remember their lineup position, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and gossip magazines have been replaced by mask catalogs. 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. Israeli Airstrikes's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Israeli Airstrikes is ranked 33rd in the world and 1st in The Black Hawks for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 32,183.64 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
