OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of The Samurai Regime is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Genacon Ciith with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 16.576 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.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, Genacon Ciith has just been declared ruler of The Samurai Regime in an international press conference, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 711th in Lazarus and 19,390th in the world for Best Weather, with 45 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
