Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Koharu is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Haruto IV with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 3.194 billion Koharuese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sakura-Shi. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Koharuese economy, worth 16.9 trillion Yen a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Tourism industry. Average income is 5,289 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, aging citizens are celebrating the end of the 'Early Bird War', Emperor Haruto IV is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Koharu's national animal is the Iriomote Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shintoism.

Koharu is ranked 1,285th in 10000 Islands and 99,393rd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
