The Aristocratic Matriarchy of Hanafuridake is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shirahana Mikado with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.251 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Environment, 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 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hanafuridakean economy, worth 135 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 108,526 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and Shirahana Mikado is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 165,704th in the world and 1st in Heian Japan for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.56 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
