The Dominion of Ah-eh-ioh-uh is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Masumi Sakurami with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.338 billion Nihonji enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nihonji economy, worth a remarkable 1,293 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 204,160 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, the latest drugs are only legally available to private patients, boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ah-eh-ioh-uh's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ah-eh-ioh-uh is ranked 26,160th in the world and 35th in Spiritus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 76 Workforce Participation Rate.
