The Aristocratic Matriarchy of Hanafuridake is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Shirahana Mikado with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.281 billion Hanafuridakeans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Defense, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nekohara. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hanafuridakean economy, worth 254 trillion yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 111,542 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Hanafuridakeans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hanafuridake's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shingon Buddhism.

Hanafuridake is ranked 84,492nd in the world and 1st in Heian Japan for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
