Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Koharu is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Haruto IV with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.801 billion Koharuans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sakura-Shi. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Koharuan economy, worth 198 trillion Yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,823 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials across Koharu are being "encouraged" to adopt Iriomote Cats to set an example for the populace, the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares. 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 409th in 10000 Islands and 34,103rd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 85 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
