Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Koharu is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Haruto IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.471 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 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Koharuan economy, worth 174 trillion Yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 70,649 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. 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 1,396th in 10000 Islands and 134,202nd in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -2 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
