Great Oyashima

Population2.98 billion

The Directory of Great Oyashima is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.98 billion Japanese are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.0%.

The thriving Japanese economy, worth 187 trillion Japanese Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is 62,889 Japanese Yen, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 246,041 per year while the poor average 10,950, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the government is spending billions of Japanese Yen on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Oyashima's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Great Oyashima is ranked 65,513th in the world and 22nd in Democritus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 83.19 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
