Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Koharu is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Haruto IV with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.395 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Koharuese economy, worth 17.8 trillion Yen a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 5,251 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and the government is avowedly secular. 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 498th in 10000 Islands and 28,416th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 10 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
