OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Isolated Community of -Hinamizawa- is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rika-chama with an iron fist, and notable for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.752 billion -Hinamizawa-ians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hinamizawa. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', there is a dearth of space for new houses, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Hinamizawa-'s national animal is the Satoko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is worship of the mighty Oyashiro-sama, and its currency is the Offal.

-Hinamizawa- is ranked 64th in Anime and 109,714th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -68 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
