The Oppressive Oppressors of Israeli Airstrikes is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.193 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, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. 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 22,952 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on tax evaders without mercy, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and gossip magazines have been replaced by mask catalogs.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 145,295th in the world and 309th in The Black Hawks for Most Income Equality, scoring 8.71 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
