The Imperial States of Hanafuridake is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Shirahana Mikado with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.294 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, with Environment, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nekohara. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hanafuridakean economy, worth 482 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 major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 112,320 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

To say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, and refugee camp conversions to Shingon Buddhism are increasingly common. 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 154,897th in the world and 1st in Heian Japan for Rudest Citizens, with 36.84 Insults Per Minute.
