The Empire of The Samurai Regime is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 16.373 billion The Samurai Regimeans 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 Social Welfare, Education, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 83%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and Leader has just been declared ruler of The Samurai Regime in an international press conference. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Samurai Regime's national animal is the Dragon Of Genacon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dragon Scale.

The Samurai Regime is ranked 2,299th in Lazarus and 86,585th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
