The Free Land of The Imperial Republic of New Kyoto is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Empress Hoshiko with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.185 billion New Kyotoans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, the Environment, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kyoto. The average income tax rate is 67%, and even higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, tax rises are attributed to divine will, and politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imperial Republic of New Kyoto's national animal is the White Tailed Cabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Imperial Gold Yen.

The Imperial Republic of New Kyoto is ranked 1,474th in Balder and 34,044th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 95 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
